Maccabean Graves

The location of the Maccabean graves is one of the best archaeological riddles waiting still to be solved.

The sources describe them as having seven big pyramids, that can even be seen from the sea.

The traditional site (“Qubur el-Yahud”) is based on a false tradition, yet the real ones could be just 300 m away (next to “Tomb of Sheikh el-Gharabwi”), and yet they are still waiting to be discovered.
