On the rock plateau of Masada Herod the Great built his palaces and fortified the summit from 37-31BC. The archaeological remains are substantial with many of the structures well preserved including rooms, store rooms, bath houses and water cisterns. Towards the end of the Jewish-Roman War a group of Jewish zealots over came the Roman soldiers at Masada and took refuge on the top of Masada. As the last outpost of Jewish resistance the rebels manages to keep off the Romans until in 73AD the Romans scaled Masada only to find that the Jews had chosen to take their own lives rather than be captured.
