Spanning ten millennia from earliest civilisation to the Arab conquest this book is the definitive one-volume reference to the ancient lands of the Bible, fusing scientific discovery and literary and religious tradition to produce a deeper understanding of the history of human culture. Here the settings of the world's three major religions are examined, incorporating the most up-to-date archaeological information with the biblical record of the Holy Land, the Encyclopaedia visits the ancient Near East site-by-site, with comprehensive descriptions of hundreds of discoveries as well as providing historical commentary and relevant biblical citations. General articles on subjects such as burial, warfare, cult objects and clothing provide further insight into the material culture and social systems of the biblical period. More than 20 distinguished archaeologists have contributed articles in their areas of expertise complete with details from their own excavations.

"Spanning ten millennia from earliest prehistory to the Arab conquest, the Archaeological Encyclopedia of the Holy Land is the definitive one-volume reference to the ancient land of the Bible, combining scientific discovery and literary and religious tradition to produce a deeper understanding of human culture. Here the settings of three of the world's major religions are examined, correlating the most up-to-date archaeological information with the biblical record of the Holy Land."--BOOK JACKET.

-Publisher

Spanning ten millennia from the earliest prehistory to the Arab conquest, Negev (classical archaeology, Hebrew U.) and Gibson, a field archaeologist working in Israel and Palestine, present a reference to the ancient land of the Bible, combining scientific discovery with literary and religious tradition to illuminate human culture. The cross-references are sparse, and there is no index. A brief glossary does not indicate pronunciation. The superb monochrome illustrations are not lavish, but well placed and informative. Four earlier editions were published by The Jerusalem Publishing House between 1972 and 1990. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
