From the Publisher"The strengths of Magness' volume are fourfold: first, it is well illustrated with maps and photographs; second, descriptions of archaeological periods are concise and salient; third, the information in the sidebars is used to debunk some of the pseudo-science that is prevalent in the media and in popolar culture; fourth, this textbook is written in a manner that makes this subject matter accessible to undergraduate students … It is readable and her use of contemporary analogies in order to illustrate archaeological methods is excellent."
Benjamin Adam Saidel, East Carolina University
"In this beautifully-produced volume, Jodi Magness provides a superb introduction to the archaeology of the region of ancient Palestine, and creates a focus that is somewhat different from the usual presentations of 'biblical archaeology' … This book is an invaluable overview and full of Magness’s characteristically sound and insightful judgements. It will be much used by students and scholars."
Joan Taylor, Strata: Bulletin of the Anglo-Israel Archaeological Society
