1. A Collection of Architectural Artifacts Marker
Inscription. This garden presents a collection of architectural artifacts discovered during the excavation of Caesarea, or found by chance.

The source of much of present day knowledge of the styles and building methods of the classical world of Greece and Rome is the work of the Roman architect and engineer Vitruvius, who wrote his major text, De Architectura, some two thousand years ago.

The architecture of this region combines Hellenistic and Roman traditions with local and imported materials, all of which was adapted to local conditions.
