Southeast of Bethlehem, the hill of Herodion rises from the landscape, bearing the remains of one of Herods castles. In the writing of Josephus, this is named as the site of Herods final resting place. The clip presents a look at the archeological research at Herodion in the mid-80s, and particularly on the search for the tomb. Archeologist Ehud Netzer, who interviewes here, would only find the tomb in the late Aughts, and would be killed soon thereafter in a tragic accident on Herodion.
