View of Excavations

View looking down and north northeast at the excavated area where the foundation of a “podium” or “monument” was found.  The southeast corner is visible in the upper right quadrant of the image.

The southern side of the structure’s foundation runs from upper right to lower left.

The structure’s foundation is rectangular measuring, approximately(!), 20 x 10 ft. [6 x 3 m.].  The northern slope of the Herodium drops off dramatically behind the man in the orange shirt.
