Another View of Masada. Here you can see the three levels of this fortress more easily. During the time of its existence as a place of liesure and living, Herod and his family were there part fo the time. Roman legions were there part fo the time. In 73 CE, Jewish zealots had inhabited the fortress during an uprising against the Romans. When the Romans were able to build a number of ramps to the top of the fortress and no further defense could be mounted, all the people living there committed suicide and the rebellion ended.
The last three photos were from postcards.
