King David’s Tomb

Tour to King David tombAccording to the Bible King David was buried within the City of David, with his forefathers (I Kings 2:9). His burial site was used by several successing kings as well.  In 1913 Edmond James de Rotschild sponsered the dig of Reymond Weil in the southern slope of the City of David in search of the Biblical royal tombs.  Weill discovered eight elaborate tombs, which several scholars suggest to be remains of the Royal cemetary.
