The Russian museum and park complex in Jerico

“Called Joasaph land plot which has belonged to Russia since 1883. In 2010-2011 by the edict of D. A. Medvedev, the president of the Russian Federation, the museum construction was built and archaelogical excavation were carried out. There are two expositions in the museum: Russia in the holy land on basis of photo materials and copies of items from the Hermitage Museum and Byzantine Jericho on basis of findings of the 1stBC-18thAD”

“There is a huge sycamore tree in the land plot. It is more than 2000 years old and it is revered by Christtians and Muslims as a tree mentioned in the evangelic story about Jesus Christ’s meeting with publican Zacchaeus in Jerico.”

The institution have been built over a historical place , the artifacts are displayed inside glass cabinet. A guide  explained me the different items and its historical context, I have recorded her words with the sound recorder, my intention is to decontextualized what she said and place it as sound fragments.
