Below the Temple Mount in Jerusalem

Below the Temple Mount sketchA Sourcebook on the Cisterns, Subterranean Chambers and Conduits of the Haram al-Sharif

by Shimon Gibson and David M. Jacobson

One of the splendours of the Augustan age, the great temple at Jerusalem occupied an area four times larger than the Acropolis. Even before this period the site had already seen much building. Here the authors have created a sourcebook on the cisterns, subterranean chambers and conduits of the Haram al-Sharif (Temple Mount).

Public and archival sources have been gathered together and original plans and drawings were re-examined, in order to enable other scholars to make use of this rich resource. This comprehensive study includes plans by Wilson, Warren, Schick and others, many of which are published here for the first time.
