Notes Archeology In Israel

Israel�s ancient history lies deep in the soil of the land. Archeologists explore the land to unearth its hidden treasures from the past.

Phillip Israel, from New Rochelle in NY, is an archeologist. He is part of a group of mostly volunteers working on Masada near the Dead Sea. Masada was the palace built by King Herrod and later the stronghold of Jewish zealots in the First Century A.D.

Professor Yigael Yadin, leader of the "dig," discusses the history of the palaces and the areas used by the Zealots.

Volunteer workers are interviewed. They come from many different countries. Most important among the finds this season are scrolls of the Bible which were buried under the floors, shekels, shards of pottery, and other items of archeological interest.
