About the Authors

Ehud Netzer is an archaeologist and professor of archaeology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Netzer has initiated and directed excavations at several building projects of Herod the Great, the ancient king of Judea. In the mid-1960s, Netzer was co-architect, together with I. Dunayevsky, of the famous excavations at Masada, directed by Professor Yigael Yadin. During this period, Netzer also was responsible for the restoration of the Masada site on behalf of Israel's National Parks Authority. From 1985 to 1993, Netzer directed the Hebrew University expedition to Zippori (Sepphoris) in the lower Gallilee, which exposed an outstanding synagogue. Zeev Weiss is an archaeologist also of Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
