Stone Upon Another
city of Herod the Great and Herod Agrippa was brutally
destroyed and devastated after the capture of Jerusalem by
Titus in A.D. 70, and its ruins still further overturned by
the Hadrianic building operations of the second century A.D.
Our excavations have shown that with the exception of a few
of the public buildings, quite literally scarcely one stone
stands on another."
