Welcome to the Herodian Quarter. This plan will help us follow Rosovsky’s description of this elegant neighborhood. Six houses, now underground, have been preserved as “The Herodian Quarter—Wohl Archaeological Museum,” with an entrance just one block south of the Burnt House. We begin at the Western House (left); a corridor displaying pre-Herodian artifacts leads to the other buildings in the complex: the Peristyle Building (beyond and to the left of a fork in the corridor); the Middle Block (at center); the Palatial mansion (top right); and the Southern House.
