This 1:50 scale model depicts the capital city of our mystery country as it was 2,000 years ago. In the 1960s, archaeologists, historians and architects used ancient texts and archaeological records to recreate a mini version of the city as it may have looked just prior to its destruction by the Romans in 70CE. In the foreground is the oldest part of the city, founded by David, the country’s 2nd king. The model is on display at the national museum.
