Foraminiferal analysis and 14C dating of a core obtained from the entrance of the ancient harbor site of Caesarea Maritime provided paleo-environmental information which has enhanced previous archaeological interpretations. Biofacies 1 was related to a low energy muddy substrate and was characterized by Ammonia tepida, Cornuspira foliacea, Haynesina depressula and Triloculina subgranulata; Biofacies 2 was related to a high energy sand substrate and was characterized by Ammonia parkinsoniana and Porosononion granosum. -from Authors
