LIVING DEMONSTRATIONS OF DEATH. Student visitors to Ketef Hinnom take a short rest in Chamber 25 of Cave 24. Accompanied by archaeologist Gabriel Barkay (not pictured), seven students lie down in the chamber and demonstrate how the ancient dead would have lain in the headrests and on the benches. In ancient times, the chamber could have accommodated an eighth body. Although five students lie along one wall in the above photo, that bench originally had six headrests.
