Summary, etc.:
Herod the Great, king of the Holy Land during the time of Christ, is best known for the Massacre of the Innocents: the Book of Matthew's account of the slaughter of Bethlehem's male infants. But Herod's bloody reputation has always hidden another side of one of the Bible's greatest villains. He was an architectural mastermind of breathtaking proportions. Herod built more and larger monuments than virtually anyone in ancient times, perhaps in all time. Now, Israeli archaeologist Ehud Netzer claims to have found Herod's grandest creation of all-his burial tomb. At his self-named palace-fortress Herodium, Herod's Lost Tomb explores Netzer's decades-long search for the King of the Jews' fabulously carved mausoleum and coffin. With in-depth examinations of classic Herodian sites such as Masada, Caesarea, and Jerusalem's Second Temple, National Geographic probes deep into the architectural brilliance of one of history's most despised men.
