When on Google Earth 128

Unable to resist temptation any longer, I spotted Heather’s WOGE 127 identifying it as Corinth, Greece, and so now it’s my turn to set a puzzle; be the first to identify the location and date of site in the picture below, and you can host you own When on Google Earth!


CLUE. . .
. . It looks like it has been carpet bombed by B52s!

The Rules

Q: What is When on Google Earth?

A: It’s a game for archaeologists, or anybody else willing to have a go!

Nice! But I'm going to leave this for someone else.

Geoff Carter said...

Feel free to solve it, - I'll be surprised if nobody gets this.

Geoff Carter said...

As it is high time for a clue - I have added one above.

I know, I know: it's Hatra in northern Iraq. It flourished in the second half of the Parthian age.

Geoff Carter said...

Excellent, well done, & congratulations Edith, it is indeed Hatra, a remarkable world heritage site in Iraq.

Over to you . .
