Overview

Archaeological discoveries continually enrich our understanding of the people, culture, history, and literature of the Middle East. The heritage of its peoples—from urban civilizations to the Bible—both inspires and fascinates. Near Eastern Archaeology (formerly The Biblical Archaeologist) brings to life the ancient world, from Mesopotamia to the Mediterranean, with vibrant images and authoritative analyses. This journal of the American School of Oriental Research at Boston University allows the reader to experience the physical remains of the cultures and locations the Bible speaks from. This collection includes 66 issues of Near Eastern Archaeology, published from 1992 to 2011.

The Logos editions of Near Eastern Archaeology are the best place to research and explore the ancient Near East. Fully integrated into your digital library, you can easily put a scholar’s library of archaeological texts in conversation with Near Eastern Archaeology. The Timeline enables you to instantly contextualize the people, places, and ideas discussed in Near Eastern Archaeology with thousands of other biblical and world events. Perform powerful searches to instantly gather relevant biblical texts and resources together. And free tablet and mobile apps let you take the discussion with you. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
