A NEW World Her­itage Site in Is­rael has been an­nounced by Unesco. The Caves of Mare­sha and Beit Gu­vrin Na­tional Park south of Modi’in com­prise an un­der­ground city be­neath an­cient twin towns. The cham­bers were used over a pe­riod of 2,000 years as ev­ery­thing from dove­cotes and sta­bles to tem­ples, tombs and hide­outs.
