For my regular readers, I've got myself involved in When on Google Earth, a game where you post a picture of a location with archaological significance, and others try to work it out. I was lucky enough to realise that Chris Lyes' WOGE 110 was somewhere in the area of Greece, and then once I found the site I worked out its significance. Considering how beautiful it is there, I think I shall have to head on a fact-finding tour to check it in person.

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!

As a first-time player (long time follower, etc), I hope this isn't too obscure - and on the other hand I do hope it isn't too obvious! :-)

For the curious in my readership, there are three of these games that I've found - WHERE on Google Earth Geological (currently at this site but about to be posted at the next location); Geographical (Slightly different rules, located here with an LJ RSS feed [ profile] wongoogleearth); and this WHEN on Google Earth.

So - off you go. If you think you know it, post in the comments, first with the name of the location and its significance gets to do the next one! It's been guessed/deduced/located - the answer is in the comments.
