Remains of the Alexandrium near Jericho

This fort was built during the later Hasmonean period to guard the fertile oasis area around Jericho. It also controlled the eastern end of the "red ascent" route between Jericho and jerusalem through the wilderness. The name honors the Hasmonean king Alexander Jannaeus. The Alexandrium was also the site of a signal fire, one in a chain that carried news of the observation of a new moon in Jerusalem to other Jewish communities. Since the ancient Jewish calendar used lunar months, these observations were crucial for marking the new month's beginning, and hence also for properly timing the celebration of festivals.
