A Video (Herod's Tomb) and a Photo (Village Discovery)

A few recent items of note:

Arutz-7 has a 3-minute video of Ehud Netzer talking about Herod's tomb on location.  Unfortunately, he doesn't say much of significance.  It apparently was more of a random clip rather than a prepared explanation of what was found and why he believes it is Herod's tomb.  If I didn't mention it before, the Society of Biblical Literature has a few choice photos of Herodium and the discovery.

During construction near the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway, a village from the time of the Bar Kochba Revolt was recently uncovered.  The photo on the Jerusalem Post indicates that some of the ruins are well-preserved.
