"King Herod had impacted Judea just before Jesus Christ was said to have walked the earth. His buildings and great works are still evident in much of modern day Palestine/Israel. This video is an excellent documentary detailing much of the work that Herod did, from the Temple Mount to Masada, from Cesearea to Herodium we get a glimpse of his great works, a review of his life and most likely scenario of the location of his Tomb.
Rich with history, we see a quick view of why Herodium was eventually built, the Parthians, not well known in a Roman dominated world, took over Judea and Herod fled. He vowed he would be buried at Herodium. National Geographic does an incredible job of showing us how he did some of his great works. I was fascinated by the research done to find out how Cesearea (on the sea) and its great sea port was first built and then how it was eventually destroyed. (You have to get the video, I will not give it away.)
I think this is recommended for anyone who has visited the Middle East, anyone studying ancient architecture, any schools with Middle Eastern or Religious history or archeology classes. Having visited to three of the locations that he built, I was astounded by the graphics that they use in the video, wish there were more, actually. And I think the conclusion that they come up with is accurate as well."
