When Caesar Augustus appointed Herod as King of the Jews, the political and physical landscape of Judea was bleak. Herod, however, crafted a personal agenda that was to transform his country and his place in history.
Reviled for great cruelty, this king is now also recognized for his daring architectural innovations. Herod rebuilt the Temple in Jerusalem and created the thriving port Caesarea Maritima with its Temple of Roma and Augustus overlooking a thriving harbor and one of his most luxurious palaces. He strategically placed other palace-fortresses throughout the country constructing a network of administrative centers. The archaeological evidence reveals an architectural genius, each palace designed with breathtaking synergy with its natural surroundings and clearly intended to impress.
Herod’s final project, his tomb at Herodium, further transformed the already remarkable site. These sites will be presented in light of current findings and analyses, revealing various aspects of this powerful ruler.
