Jerusalem, Israel

The Kidron Valley, famous for its tombs, separates the Mount of Olives from the old city of Jerusalem (see the wall?). The most conspicuous monument is the tomb of Absolom (see the hat?), which the discovery of a recent inscription suggests may also be the tomb of Zachariah. Absolom? King David's son. Zachariah? Father of John the Baptist. [2010]
