The "real" When on Google Earth 86!
Following the attempted usurpation of WOGE86, here is something REALLY old!

Here are the rules:

Q: What is When on Google Earth? A: It’s a game for archaeologists, or anybody else willing to have a go!

Q: How do you play it? A: Simple, you try to identify the site in the picture.

Q: Who wins? A: The first person to correctly identify the site, including its major period of occupation, wins the game.

Q: What does the winner get? A: The winner gets bragging rights and the chance to host the next When on Google Earth on his/her own blog!

Be the first to correctly identify the site below and its major period of occupation in the comments below and you can host your own!

That would be Elephantine (incl the Temple of Khnum in the bottom half), Dyn. III through Late Antiquity.

Well done, Troels. You get to post the next WOGE puzzler.
Congrats!

Very Good WOGE.
Apologies to all for haste in setting up a false WOGE. All traces of which have been expunged from the net.
