Excavation at Akko, Bahai Gardens

Ofra Barkai

An excavation conducted in 2003 in a building immediately west of the Bahai Gardens in Akko attempted to date a single room structure. There was an antilia well to the east of the structure and courtyards to the north and northwest of it. Excavations near the buildings southern wall and next to walls in the courtyards have shown that the building was erected in no earlier than the late Ottoman period. It is likely to have been one of the gardens and/or farms known to have stood on the outskirts of Akko at that time.
