Following on from "Treasures From Bible Times" and "Discoveries from the Time of Jesus", this book provides a comprehensive survey of biblical archaeology. Behind a sealed doorway lies the lost treasure of King Tutankhamun. A shepherd casually aims a stone at a hole in a cliff, and the Dead Sea Scrolls are discovered. An excavation to the north of Galilee reveals the remains of a synagogue from the time of Jesus. It is stories such as these that give archaeology its fascination. The treasures of the Bible lands are as varied as the stories that surround their discovery. Gold and silver, ancient manuscripts, tomb pictures, palace ivories - all find their place in this account, enabling the reader to picture in detail the way people lived in Bible times, and the momentous places and events they witnessed.
