Real archaeology!

Here are some cheesy archaeology photos Damien and I took at Shobak castle, a Crusader fortress that stands alone high in the mountains. It is rather easy to imagine the 12th century residents of the castle fleeing for their lives when Saladin’s armies drove the people out of the castle through an escape route that can still be accessed. The dark, steep, man-made tunnel is the funnest way to get to the base of a mountain. The castle lies in ruins, but the fortress still stands strong.

About Lisa

Here is a snippet about me. I'm a born and raised city-girl from Toronto, Canada. I've now reached my 21st birthday (90s baby) and am making my way through university while traveling when I can. My trusty Canon Rebel is my favourite companion, and I will use this blog to share photos from my adventures. I have traveled to Greece, Italy, England, Serbia, Jordan, South Africa, Hawaii, Quebec, Nova Scotia, Arizona, Florida, and New York City. When I am in my home city, Toronto, I am continuing my studies at the University of Toronto for a degree in Archaeology. I have been part of archaeological projects in Madaba, Jordan and at Wonderwerk, South Africa. I am going into my fourth year at U of T and then see where life takes me.
