As a special treat, here's another blast from the past from a previous visit to the NBC Universal Experience attraction, a model miniature from the 1981 TV mini-series, Masada, which starred Peter O'Toole and Peter Strauss. The story was inspired by the siege of the Masada citadel in Israel by Roman Empire legions in AD 73, hence the need for a siege tower.
