Work Continuing on Herod’s Tomb
Since most people don’t read comments on blogs, especially on posts from a year and a half ago, I’ll note one made today by Sigho concerning Herod’s tomb at Herodium.
Thanks for your information. I was preveledged to be able to enter the site of Herod's Tomb Yesterday (Sept. 21, 2008). The site is open for public from a distance. But we (3 people) were granted by on site-archaeologists to enter the site. It is still being excavated. Unfortunately, pictures I took yesterday cannot be publicized. Just wait for the official publication by the archaeologists.
I did not realize that work was on-going here. The restriction on taking photos may indicate that they’re doing more than sweeping dirt.
UPDATE (9/23): Ferrell Jenkins has given me permission to post a photo he took of construction work going on at the tomb last month.
