Rujm el-Hiri - "stone heap of the wild cat"


Contributor AirWorks created this amazing drone video of Rujm el-Hiri, an important ruins site in northern Israel.  It's a series of concentric stone circles situated in the Golan Heights, an area east of the Sea of Galilee which was annexed by Israel in the 1980s following its capture from Syria in the Six-Day War of 1967.   The site is made of over 42,000 stones, with a roughly 5 meter (15 ft.) mound at the center.  The purpose and age of the site are the subjects of considerable debate within the worldwide archaeological community.
