As in the past 20 years, Cayetana Johnson delves into the center of the spiritual world and archaeological. "Year after year I rediscover this Holy Land and at times not Holy," says this archaeologist hispanic-american with a smile on his lips and a spike in hand, looking for ancient footsteps in Jerusalem.
As for example the slope of gold three inches and more than 2,200 years old have been found in the site Ir David (City of David) a few meters from the Holy Places. "I found gold!", exclaimed an excited colleague of his, initiating a process of protocols and reports prior to being made public in August.

"Here has been excavated also in the muslim period and has remained part of the islamic period. There will always be controversy," he says before he remembered when he excavated the byzantine era: "Some of the houses around us were throwing bags of garbage because they resented what we were doing.

Gadot recognizes that the controversy is also present in the academic world. "There is debate but I believe that the archaeologists of the universities should be in here precisely because it is a sensitive site. We can't leave it in a vacuum, and that ends up being the object of the political game," he says. "We are in an area very important for the mankind from the point of view of research and the work, therefore, must be very professional," he concludes.
Johnson was found crosses dated in thousands of years that according to her "indicates that there is a living history of anonymous people. People who were circulating and visiting the Holy Places. In the case of Jerusalem, the byzantine, the centre was the Holy Sepulchre".
