After six centuries beneath the desert sand, the ancient city of Caesarea is finally revealing its secrets.
2,000 years ago, King Herod the Great built a wondrous city by the sea. For 1,200 years it stood, its history a kaleidoscopic tableaux of legendary figures and conflict. But some six centuries ago, its Moslem rulers destroyed it to its foundations rather than let it fall into the hands of their enemies.
KING HEROD'S LOST CITY is a mesmerizing journey through the history of this fabled place. Discover how the city reflected its creator and his legacy of cruelty, bloodshed and violence. Over the centuries, it passed from Roman Paganism to Byzantine Christianity to Moslem rule to Crusader and back to the Moslems before being razed. Join teams that are now working to bring the city and its rumored riches to light. Biblical scholars tell of the role of figures like Pontius Pilate and the apostles Peter and Paul, who left their legacies as part of the heritage of this storied, lost city.
From the pages of the Old Testament to the blistering sands of the Middle Eastern desert, this is a fascinating chronicle of KING HEROD'S LOST CITY.
