View of Tomb 25. Note especially the opening that has been blocked with six large stones. This opening leads to a "repository." In ancient times after the bodies had decomposed, the bones and the grave goods were collected and placed in the repository and the benches were reused for additional burials. This repository contained the richest grouping of finds ever discovered in Jerusalem – Click Here to view the interior.
