Massada Floor Tiles

Here is a close up look at some floor tiles in King Herod's palace at Massada. Having recently tiled my basement floor I have a great respect for the amount of work that went into that floor over two thousand years ago.  The cement that the tile was laid in was a lot thicker than we use today. Notice too how rough the floor is underneath the tile. It was a lovely design.
