Fort Belvoir was built by the Crusaders around 1200 AD.
Where can you get a roof, these days, that will hold up for 800 years?
Here is a shot of me on guard duty with a fellow tourist.
This is a grinding bowl made out of the basalt rock common to the area.

To the north you can just see the southern portion of the Sea of Galilee.
Mount Tabor is barely visible in the hazy distance.
