The crusader cemetery at Atlit

The Crusader Cemetery at Atlit, located near Château Pèlerin on the northern coast of Israel, was used during the 13th century, in the final hours of the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem.
Since 2015, archaeologists study the cemetery's organisation, the burial practices and the deceased's descent and home country. They also are identifying resaurations made after an archaeological campagn in 1934.
