Herod's Tomb 1


View looking down and northeast at the excavated area where the foundation of a “podium” or “monument” of Herod's Tomb was found.  The southwest corner is visible in the lower right quadrant of the image.  

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 on the left (north) side of the image.

Note the finely dressed ashlar masonry.
