About:

Mount Scopus is one of the hills near Jerusalem, and has been a strategic location from which to attack the city since ancient times. It overlooks the entire city, which gives it the name Mount Lookout. The Romans used it in their siege of Jerusalem, and the Crusaders used it in their attacks. More recently it has become the location of several important features, such as a university, a botanical garden, and an archaeological site where the remains of several people were found.
