Mosaic in King Herod’s Palace at Masada. Despite it’s remote location, excavations at Masada have revealed beautiful tiles and mosaics, and balconies with beautiful views of the surrounding country. Masada was taken in A.D. 66 by Jewish rebels who held it for seven years before being over taken by the Romans. In 73/74 this was the location of the mass suicide of nine hundred rebels.
