When on Google Earth 37

May 12, 2009

HINT: It might be an Antipadean site….

As Billy solved When on Google Earth 36 (WhenonGE) at Ferhans Blog (site not located in his garden this time), we are delighted to present WhenonGE 37…

Q: What is When on Google Earth? A: It’s a game for archaeologists, or anybody else willing to have a go!

Q: How do you play it? A: Simple, you try to identify the site in the picture.

Q: Who wins? A: The first person to correctly identify the site, including its major period of occupation, wins the game.

Q: What does the winner get? A: The winner gets bragging rights and the chance to host the next When on Google Earth on his/her own blog!

Be the first to correctly identify the site below and its major period of occupation in the comments below and you can host your own!

    For those of you who may not have picked up on it, we were aware of the spelling mistake in anti’PA’dean.

    Please show us the next!
