Beit She’an

One of the largest cities in the Roman-Byzantine Empire, Beit She’an was once very grand, with a giant theatre, streets with tall columns, shops, bathhouses, a hippodrome and hundreds of homes. When this beautiful city was toppled in 749 by a massive earthquake, it was never rebuilt. 

Overgrown, it was not until the mid-20th-century Israeli archaeologists enticed Beit She’ an, to re-emerge out of the murk, restoring the once splendid theatre, the Cardo, with its multitude of columns.
