Masada: the Roman camps

 

A solid wall was built surrounding Masada and connected the 8 Roman camps.  It was 6 feet thick and 7 miles long and built to prevent escaping. An estimated 9000 soldiers plus support personnel and slaves conducted the siege. Szoltan discovered the first Roman siege camps in 1932.
