This is my map of Southern Israel showing the city of Jericho.
Jericho is one of the earliest continuous settlements in the world, dating perhaps from about 9000 B.C. Archaeological excavations have demonstrated Jericho’s lengthy history. The city’s site is of great archaeological importance; it provides evidence of the first development of permanent settlements and thus of the first steps toward civilization.
Notice the figures on the border of the map.
If you look carefully at the map border you will see I have included some little black and white figures. I will add different figures to the borders of each map, adding characters that relate to the map subject.
