Transcript MARITIME CITIES OF PALESTINE. 109 The range of Carmel at its southern base is about seven miles in width. The Wady el Malih (Valley of Salt), which enters the plain of Esdraelon (see page 96) between Tell Kaimtln and El Mahrakah, marks its southern boundary (see map). The spurs of Carmel thence merge into the widening range of low undulating hills called Belad er Ruheh (the Breezy Land), composed of soft chalky soil, which divides the great inland plain of Esdraelon from the plains of the coast. THE MARITIME CITIES AND PLAINS OF PALESTINE. Nowhere in Palestine do w^e recognise so many indications of the former prosperity of the country as in the strip of coast-land which stretches from the headland of Carmel (see page 88) to the port of Jaffa (see page 131), yet this is now one of its most neglected and poorly populated districts. It does not include one modern town or village of importance, and its once-splendid cities and its Crusading fortresses are in the last stages of decay or utterly destroyed. Nevertheless, the route is always interesting. We emerge from the Carmel hills nearly opposite to the ruins of Athlit (see page 100). Here the fertile but scantily cultivated coast-plain is about two miles in width. It extends northward for eight miles, closed in between columns in vhe sea, c^:sarp:a, ^ -i r 1 «. 1 Formed of granite and various kinds of marble ; they are relics of Herod's city which a narrow ridge Ol Sandstone rOCk, were US€J by mediaeval builders to strengthen sea walls which have now perished. 7G
