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.
