Scottish bricks found in Israel

The following Scottish bricks were found by Nadav Biran along the Bat-Galim neighbourhood in Haifa, Israel.

Nadav states – The location is just right on the water line where the waves are eroding the rocks and the construction debris. This area used to be a dumping site of construction debris so it is rich in history of construction materials but it was used later as a filling material for a local road and promenade.
