THE tomb of the biblical King Herod the Great has been found, archeologists say.

The final resting place of King Herod, who ruled Judea for the Roman empire from about 37BC, was found at the ruins of a magnificent palace he built near Jerusalem.

King Herod was known for his role in the massacre of the innocents as described in the Gospel of Matthew, where he ordered the deaths of young males in Bethlehem to stop a new king of the Jews, whose birth had been prophesied by the three wise men.

Herod was also known for expanding the second temple in Jerusalem.

They found pieces of his sarcophagus. No body remains or bones found.

Worms wouldn’t eat the bones, as far as I know.

Different Herod. The tomb that was found was that of Herod the Great.

I think that was Herod Antipas, who was one of the tetrarchs that followed Herod the Great. Herod the Great (according to my NIV study Bible) died about 4 BC, when Jesus was 2-3 years old. His death was the occasion for Joseph and Mary to bring Jesus back from Egypt and settle in Galilee.
