Shivta is one of the best preserved sites from Byzantine times in the world(!).

Located about an hour drive south of Beer-Sheva, Shivta is in the middle of a desolated part of the Negev. Yet up to 1200 years ago, it was a busy semi-urban site.

Following the Muslim conquest Shivta was abandoned, yet its state preservation un paralleled – At some building the second floor is still in tact!.
