Episode Description

Jerusalem

From modern dumps to ancient landfills, Jerusalem's long and holy history is told by its Trash. While archaeologists sift through the ancient garbage scraps of the earliest pilgrims, millions of modern-day pilgrims flood Jerusalem's holy sites, leaving so much Trash behind it takes an army of garbage collectors to clean up after them. Tensions in the Holy City between Muslims, Christians and Jews often run high, especially when it comes to Trash.
