Is Masada Myth or History–What Happened to the Skeletons?

In this wide-ranging interview with Neal Sendlack host of YouTube channel @GnosticInformant, we delve into all sorts of questions regarding the the history and mythology of Masada–the last stand of Jewish patriots against the Romans during the first revolt (73 CE). One of the core mysteries of the entire story is the matter of what happened to the bodies of the 960 who perished, who of the two women and five children who were spared–and what might be their story, and what about the skeletons discovered in the excavations in the Fall of 1963 when Yadin began excavations of the site. Our historical account is Josephus, Jewish War 7.389ff.
