EXPLORING BEIT SHE'AN NATIONAL PARK!

Beit She'an history started as early as the late Neolithic/early Chalcolithic periods. Around  (sixth to fifth millennia BCE). The remaining of Beit She'an are very well preserved, mostly from the Egyptian, Biblical and Hellenic and Roman periods. The end of Beit She'an was due to a giant earthquake which occurred on January 18th, 749 the city was completely devastated and abandoned. 

While I was there all I could be thinking and feeling was how amazing it is, how amazing life is. All the settlements here in Beit She'an all the memories left behind. 

My boyfriend and I were discussing about how lucky we are to see this part of well preserved history without being involved in the dangers of the past. We occasionally speak about how cool it must be like to live life back in the day. Then we think about what happens in Game of Thrones and all the history books we've read and documentaries we've seen and know the truth is far from beautiful and easy, it wasn't fun. Life was tough and hard back then. 

Though life was tough they still found ways to adapt. Like these very awesome roman baths! 
Surprisingly modern! Both the Rich and Poor could afford it and get access. They cleaned themselves with oils to get rid of grease! :) Socialized had little wrestling matches to get sweaty! There were cold and warm baths! Cold for closing off the pores! They even designed the baths with seats! 

If baths aren't to your fancy you had the theatre! Full of cool shows to watch! :)

Lets begin our journey! 
Exploring Beit She'an!
Make peace with our past and make our futures a brighter one!
With all the conflicts going around in our modern age, I think to myself. Why? 
Have we not learnt from the past that this is not the way? That conflicts create and
only inflict pain on those less fortunate. They should not have to suffer anymore. 

I hope this land finds peace.

We are really not that different at all.
