Alec Gerrard's Temple Model

Alec Gerrard has spent 30 years constructing an amazingly detailed 1:100 scale model of Herod's temple in a shed on his farm. Unfortunately, due to copyright restrictions I can't include any pictures here (or use them in my classes), so you'll have to check out the pictures in these Daily Mail and Telegraph articles (with a slide-show here).

Or you can order Gerrard's pictorial guide to the Temple featuring his model. See also Graham Kennedy's discussion.

I saw this on The Naked Archeologist who interviewed Mr. Gerrard and showed the model. It is awesome to see.
