High above the Dead Sea, Masada was built by King Herod to withstand the onslaughts of all aggressors. And for three full years a band of Jewish freedom fighters stood against the might of Roman legions. In the end their fate was terrible: a mass suicide meant to rob the Romans of slaves and satisfaction.
LOST WORLDS returns to this desolate Judean hilltop to reconstruct the glories of Herod's formidable fortress. Clues to the stronghold's construction - and its builders - are still being discovered among the tumbled stones. Tour the storehouses, barracks, cisterns, armory and palace as they appear today. Then, as vivid graphics breathe life into the ruins, journey to Masada during the time of the siege and once again face the might of Rome.
