Archaeology in Israel Update–January/February 2011
On 18th January, a ceremony was held to mark the reopening of the site on the River Jordan where John the Baptist is supposed to have baptized Jesus. It had been closed for over forty years as a military zone and has now been released by the army and renovated by the Israel Nature and Parks Authority who have improved access for pilgrims and tourists. The site is known in Arabic as Qasr al-Yehud (Castle of the Jew) and pilgrims can enter it from both the Israeli and Jordanian side, though crossing between them is not possible as it is fenced off mid-river to mark the boundary between the two countries.
