Title: Back to Masada
Publisher: Yad Ben-Zvi Press
Book Condition: New
Text is in Hebrew The book summarizes the eight volumes of reports of the Masada excavations, directed by Yigael Yadin, that have been published to date. Those excavations revealed findings from a period of over 150 years-from the third decade BCE, when Herod built his fortress atop the cliff of Masada, to the middle of the second century CE, when a Roman garrison was stationed there. While most of the structures unearthed-walls, palaces, storehouses, public buildings, and private dwellings-date from the time of Herod, the vast majority of the other findings-ceramic and stone pottery, written documents dealing with daily life, fragments of scrolls, coins, cloth, and more-have been dated with certainty to the short period (66â€"73 CE) from the beginning of the revolt against Rome to the fall of Masada. Masada has also become a symbol for many, particularly Israelis. The author devotes the concluding chapter to a review of the status of that symbol today, as he confronts the criticism voiced during the past few years of the expedition's work and conclusions with the archaeological evidence.
