Notícia do jornal israelense Haaretz e assinada por Amiram Barkat, que diz:
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem announced Monday night that it has uncovered the grave and tomb of King Herod, who ruled Judea for the Roman empire from circa 37 BCE. According to a press release from the Hebrew University, the news of the archeological find at Herodium was to be announced Tuesday morning at a special news conference, and was to be kept secret until then, but the discovery by Haaretz of the story had led to the premature announcement.The tomb was discovered by Hebrew University Professor Ehud Netzer, who is considered one of the leading experts on King Herod. Netzer has conducted archeological digs at Herodium since 1972 in an attempt to locate the grave and tomb. The discovery solves one of Israel's greatest archeological mysteries. Additional details will be made available at the Tuesday press conference. The discovery solves one of Israel's greatest archeological mysteries.
