Yigael Yadin, Masada (New York: Random House, 1966), p. 97: “The weapons of the Zealots, who used mainly bows and arrows were discovered by us in many locations on Masada. We found hundreds of arrows in such places as the middle terrace of the palace-villa, the western palace and elsewhere, literally in heaps where they had been piled and intentionally set on fire.” However, in his preliminary excavation report (“The Excavation of Masada 1963/64, Preliminary Report,” Israel Exploration Journal [IEJ] 15 [1965]), pp. 61–64, Yadin alludes to Zealot workshops in the western palace.
