The Archaeological Treasures Recovered Temple Mount Sifting Project

Temple Mount Sifting Project

The Temple Mount Sifting Project is the first archaeological sifting of artifacts from the Temple Mount in History. Objects from the First Temple and Second Temple are being uncovered. You have the chance to participate in this unique, archaeological project of sifting this soil, dumped unceremoniously outside the Temple Mount walls by the Jordanian Moslem Waqf. The Temple Mount Sifting Project is as close as you can ever come to excavating the Temple Mount itself.
