Looks like we could have another interesting archeological dig in central Beirut. These pictures were sent to me this morning by reader Zal fa, who shot them between the construction walls.
It would be great if some of the residents of nearby buildings could get some aerial shots from their vantage point. Anyone know someone who lives there?
The dig must not be too old, because it is not apparent in this google earth image of the area.
The site occupies the large parking lot near the bottom left, which used to be used for the weekly organic market, Souk El Tayeb.
Here are the photos Zal fa sent blown up in original size.
