Israel: National museum opening King Herod exhibit

 

Ancient royalty

Israel’s national museum is preparing an exhibition on King Herod, the Jewish ruler under Roman occupation two millennia ago. The display, billed as the world’s first on Herod, includes a reconstructed tomb and sarcophagus of Herod, known for huge building projects, including the biblical Jewish Second Temple in Jerusalem. The exhibit, Herod the Great: The King’s Final Journey, opens Feb. 13 and will run through Oct. 5.
