INDEX of Sites

The Herodium dig director was Ehud Netzer until his untimely death. Who is directing the dig now? Were any excavations conducted prior to Netzer? On the Herodium you many find information connected with the director of the dig Ehud Netzer. LINK You might also mention how he died, as it was both ironic and tragic but remember this is not a biography of Netzer but an excavation report on the archaeology of the Herodium. Be sure to look at the synagogue , small theatre, and controversy over the tomb of Herod that has been in the news lately. Remember to provide"the historical background of the site (including history of previous archaeological excavations, if any), objectives of the current excavation, progress at the site, and significance of discoveries to biblical study. "Make sure to choose a good encyclopedia, journal articles, and books that specialize in the subject. This will give you a cross section of material.
