|Representing the Middle East and dating back to the 6th century AD, the Madaba Mosaic Map contains the earliest cartographic depiction of Jerusalem. The art of the piece alone is quite captivating, but the setting in the Church of St John the Baptist, along with knowing just a little about this land’s history, creates the right ingredients to find this a fascinating site. – Sarah|
