Largest Roman Camp

Largest Roman Camp

View from the top of Masada looking west and down on the largest of the eight Roman Camps.  From this camp Silva directed the siege operation at Masada.  Along the sides of the camp, the outlines of the entrances to it are visible.

In the upper left portion of the camp a smaller camp is visible.  This small camp—within the larger one—house a Roman Garrison stationed at Masada after its fall.
