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, and 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.


Bonus feature: interactive game demo.

    Comments about Herod's Lost Tomb DVD:

    The story is interesting enough that I would watch it again. There are some video segments that are repeated several times and some of these seem a bit too overhyped for my liking. If you can get past these, the DVD takes an interesting angle on the story of Herod's life. The DVD helped me to understand some of the other political events and technological advances that were happening at that time.
