Herod – Design and Realpolitik

Herod – Design and Realpolitik.  Shmuel Brown has a richly illustrated three part series on the recently opened “Herod the Great Display” in the Israel Museum.  This is a very very informative series.   Walk, don’t run to Shmuel Brown’s blog.  You might want to budget about 10 minutes per informative post.
