WhenonGE 82

March 3, 2010

As Declan solved When on Google Earth 81 (WhenonGE) at,  here’s WhenonGE 82…

So once again here are the rules:

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 a list of previous WhenonGE’s see the list on our blog post here and then you can follow the link in the comments to trace the sequence back to here… or join the Facebook group here….

    Well done Matt. Over to you… We were getting worried that no one was playing anymore.

    I’m glad to see the game is still going on! This image is strangely beautiful… buildings archaeology as art….

    Billy spotted the site on a Google Earth surf and was struck by the beauty of the image, we had bookmarked it earlier for a WhenonGE.
