King Herod's Tomb Found Herod the Great expanded the Second Jewish Temple and built the walls of the old city of Jerusalem. The Romans appointed him King of the Jews in 40 BC. The Christian Gospel of Matthew says that Herod ordered the Massacre of the Innocents, the killing of all children in Bethlehem under two, when he learned that Jesus had been born. Now archaeologist Ehud Netzer of Hebrew University claims he has found hundreds of pieces of what he believes to be Herod's sarcophagus --a major discovery. Professor Kathryn Gleason of Cornell University is Project Director of the Excavation of Herod's Promontory Palace at Caesarea on the coast of Israel.
