The Khirbet Midras pyramid etc.

ANCIENT ARCHITECTURE: Khirbet Midras pyramid and Archaeological Site in Israel (Leman Altuntaş, Arkeonews).
Khirbet Midras (Arabic) or Horvat Midras (Hebrew) is one of several antiquities sites located within the Adullam Grove National Park, an Israel Nature Reserve south of Beit Shemesh. Khirbet Midras dates from the 10th century BC to the 4th century AD.

Excavation at the site has uncovered a Byzantine-era church, burial caves and tunnels used by rebels during the Bar Kochba revolt, a columbarium cave, and a burial pyramid.
