Spanning ten millennia, from the earliest civilization to the Arab conquest, The Archaeological Encyclopedia of the Holy Land is the definitive one-volume reference to the ancient lands of the Bible, fusing scientific discovery and literacy 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 Archaeological Encyclopedia of the Holy Land visits the ancient Near East site-by-site, with comprehensive descriptions of hundreds of archaeological discoveries as well as historical commentary and relevant biblical citations. General articles on such subjects as burial, warfare, cult objects, and clothing provide further insight into the material culture and social systems of the biblical period.
