King Herod commisioned an aqueduct to deliver water from the springs near Shuni, 16 kilometers north-east of Caesarea Maritima. We arrived there before 07:00 in the morning. The aqueduct run for quite a distance on the beach, provided water for over 1,000 years. Hadrian added another channel to the aqueduct around 165 CE.
The first thing I had to get used to, is the use of the BCE/CE acronyms. Never knew they existed. Soon learnt that BCE/CE are other names for BC/AD. Apparently the CE (common era) was introduced by Jewish academics during the 19th century. As always with this 'correct' speech patterns, I am left wondering about something. In this case I wonder what an uncommon era would be.
Don't worry, I will post another picture at some time to show the aqueduct in all its glory.
