After visiting Masada last year, I've read a number of books, watched videos, including a really good one that sticks right with what was written by Flavius Josephus, and I still have lots of questions. I've also always wanted to know more about the actual dig at the site. I just finished another excellent book that cataloged the findings and the historical background of what was found. It was an amazing book and I'm glad I read it. However, it didn't talk to me about the dig itself as did The Zealots of Masada: Story of a Dig.

This book amazingly talks about the decisions an archeologist has to make about where and how to dig, as well as the problems related to the excavation.

It's easy to read and the pictures are amazing! There are pictures of many of the buildings and ruins, many of the findings, the archeologists' camp at the base of Masada, and even some pictures taken during the filming of "Masada", which was an excellent movie, well worth watching for those who want to know more about it.

This book is exactly what I was looking for! It made me feel part of the dig.

THE ROMANS

They had everything, the best scholars, the best military, the best judicial system and look at all the loot they got from terrorizing neighborhoods, killing people so efficiently.

I got this book at Masada in 2000, almost exactly four years ago when I went with a church group to Israel. I had heard the story before, a very gory one at that, about how a group of jewish zealots fended off a Roman legion, then took their own lives. I really was not that interested in going there. However, I fell in love with the judean desert, the place where David fled when he was on the run from his father-in-law, King Saul, Israel's first king, who wanted David dead. Here also, John the Baptist preached, Jesus was baptized and tempted, the essenes gathered and studied, where, somehow, the dead sea scrolls were amassed at Qumran, where Moses' gaze hovered over a land he would never set foot on. After going to Masada and hearing the guides' narration of the events that transpired here, I had to admit I was so glad it was on our itinerary. And then I purchased this book and read it when I got back to the U.S.

The book tells both the story of Masada, the zealots' conflict with the Romans as told by Josephus and the story of Yigael Yadin, archaeologist, professor, Israeli army veteran who took to task the effort to find proofs that Josephus' story was true in 1965. That task took as much planning probably as that of the Roman army for where Masada is, is in the middle of blessed nowhere south of the Dead Sea. Some of their finds were invaluable and enabled other researchers to more accurately date their sites.
