Overview

Excerpt from Peasant Life in the Holy Land

During the last forty or fifty years a flood of light has been thrown on the ancient history of Egypt, Babylonia, Syria, and the other lands so intimately associated with Palestine, as well as on that of the Holy Land itself, thereby illustrating and confirming the Scripture narrative. Towns and cities buried for thousands of years have been compelled to yield up their secrets to the spade of the explorer; the story of forgotten tribes and nations has been discovered: ancient languages have been re-learnt, and their records and literature, personal correspondence and private accounts, have been made accessible to the ordinary reader.

In another field of research, that of the manners and customs, language and folk-lore, of these Eastern lands, much has also been accomplished, but in both much yet remains to be done.
