Archaeology of the Land of the Bible, 10,000–586 B.C.E.

Step-by-step, era-by-era, author Amihai Mazar shows just what each major archaeological discovery has to say about the mysterious stories of the Bible. It’s all here, from the mundane clay jars of the ancient households of Palestine to the beautiful sculpture and jewelry that passed through these lands on the primitive trade routes. From the first settlements in the land of the Bible to the tumultuous period of the divided monarchy of Israel and Judah and the destruction of the First Temple by Nebuchadnezzar, Mazar’s overview of the biblical life and the archaeological evidence to support it is without parallel.

Archaeology of the Land of the Bible has quickly established itself as the standard text in biblical archaeology.

Archaeology of the Land of the Bible, Volume II: The Assyrian, Babylonian, and Persian Periods (732–332 B.C.E.)

Every year thousands of enthusiasts, both amateur and professional, spend the summer months digging in the sands of Israel hoping to find items that relate in some way to the places or events depicted in the Bible. Thousands more view artifacts in museums and long to know the full stories behind them. Volume 2 of Archaeology of the Land of the Bible is the essential book for all of them.

In Ephraim Stern’s sequel to the first volume by Amihai Mazar, this world-renowned archaeologist who has directed excavations in the Holy Land for many years offers a dramatic look at how archaeological research contributes to our understanding of the connections between history and the stories recounted in the Bible. Stern writes about various artifacts unearthed in recent years and relates them to the Assyrian, Babylonian, and Persian periods in the Bible. This volume also contains photographs and illustrations of rare ancient relics ranging from household pottery to beautifully crafted jewelry and sculpture.
