Masada is situated in the middle of the desert in Southern Israel and sits on a plateau. Masada is very famous in Jewish history for the way the Jews fought off the Romans that laid siege for months, until they finally captured Masada. Myth has it that the Jews set fire to the buildings, and committed mass suicide so as to not fall into the hands of the Romans, and become slaves. The archeologists say there is no proof to this myth.
