ISRAELI ARCHAEOLOGISTS WORK ON ‘FURTHER EVIDENCE’ OF HEROD’S TOMB


Israeli archaeologists at Jerusalem’s Hebrew University are working on what they believe is further proof that a site uncovered in 2007 is the tomb of King Herod, the king of Judea, whose actions are noted in New Testament texts of the Bible, reports Ecumenical News International.

Based on studies of architectural elements uncovered at a mausoleum they discovered in 2007 at Herodium, about 15 kilometres south of Jerusalem, researchers have determined the structure was a lavish two-story building with a concave-conical roof.
