Rough Stone Work

Storage Building

Here we have an entrance to one of the storage building on Massada.

Notice the stone work was roughly done and then plastered over for a neater appearance. This was a common practice for many building in that time.

Stone was a popular building material because they had a lot of it and little else.


  1. IS that some sort of repair on the right using mortar of some sort? It looks so odd to me.
