A newly designed architectural model of Herod's Temple

This slide set was created in response to overwhelming demand for a visual presentation on the archaeology of the Temple Mount built by Herod the Great. Using 60 slides it surveys the entire area of Herod's vast and spacious Temple Mount which even today dominates the city of Jerusalem. Panoramic views and vivid close-ups of elements revealed by the recent excavations and other remains still extant around the Mount, lay the foundation for an evocative reconstruction. Shots of a newly designed architectural model, due to go on a travelling exhibition in the U.S. in 1998, recreate the splendour of the first century Temple, while points of singular interest are further illustrated by detailed reconstruction drawings.
Some rare photographs are also included such as one of the area near the Western Wall being bulldozed following the Six Day War, in preparation for the building of a prayer area and plaza. The caption booklet supplies brief notes to each slide so that a full tour of the Temple Mount can be given in one session.
