"The Road of the Millennia" (Derech Hadorot)

The Road of MillenniaThe Road of MillenniaIn 1975, Dr. Reuben Hecht proposed the establishment of an outdoor archaeological museum which would include authentic reconstructed buildings representing various periods throughout the history of Eretz-Israel. The project suggested by Dr. Hecht was based on locating the remains of ancient buildings facing destruction in sites around Israel, and transporting them from their original site to the ground allocated to the outdoor museum, where they would be reconstructed along walking trails surrounded by natural forestation. The site approved was in the Carmel National Park, close to the University of Haifa.
