YIGAEL YADIN MEMORIAL FUND THE MASADA EXCAVATION REPORTS THE YIGAEL YADIN EXCAVATIONS, 1963–1965
No other archaeological endeavor in Israel has attracted such widespread attention as the excavations at Masada carried out under the direction of Yigael Yadin in 1963–1965. Interest may have been precipitated by Josephus Flavius’ detailed account of the dramatic fate of Masada at the end of the Jewish War against the Romans (66–73/74 CE). Masada includes remains of an impressive architectural complex built by Herod the Great and vivid evidence of Jewish resistance to Rome’s might.
