Byblos at Lebanon

George Mhanna on June 23 2003 collected soil from Byblos.  He wrote "Byblos is one of the world's oldest cities.  It is believed to be 7000 years old.  It has seen many great civilizations, stretching from the Phoenicians to the Egyptians, to the Romans and Arabs".

I find it interesting that on that same day of his soil gathering, Jenny was collecting soil in Norway for the project. Click here for details
