Massada near the Dead Sea

Creator's Description

Herod the Great (or rather the Cruel) built near the Dead Sea a fortress where he could hide in case of a revolution. In the 73 CE fought here 960 Zealots under Elazar ben Jair fought against the Tenth Legion led by Lucius Flavius Silva. Flavius Josephus tells us that at the end of the battle 10 of the defenders of Massada were chosen to kill the other defenders and one of them to kill the other nine. The last survivor took his own life. Produced with CyberLink PowerDirector 9
