Archaeological Encyclopedia of the Holy Land
Avraham Negev, Shimon Gibson
Continuum, 2005 - Religion - 559 pages
Spanning ten millennia from earliest civilisation to the Arab conquest this book is the definitive one-volume reference to the ancient lands of the Bible, fusing scientific discovery and literary and religious tradition to produce a deeper understanding of the history of human culture. Here the settings of the world's three major religions are examined, incorporating the most up-to-date archaeological information with the biblical record of the Holy Land, the Encyclopaedia visits the ancient Near East site-by-site, with comprehensive descriptions of hundreds of discoveries as well as providing historical commentary and relevant biblical citations. General articles on subjects such as burial, warfare, cult objects and clothing provide further insight into the material culture and social systems of the biblical period. More than 20 distinguished archaeologists have contributed articles in their areas of expertise complete with details from their own excavations. >

Archaeological encyclopedia of the Holy LandUser Review - Book Verdict
of Biblical Archaeology (Hendrickson, 2000), this is instead a complete listing of archaeological sites in the Holy Land (Israel, Palestine, and Jordan). The text consists of 800 entries, running a few paragraphs to two or three pages in length and arranged alphabetically by the name of the site or subject (e.g., "Ivory" or "Shells"). Each entry covers the history of the site, the materials found there, and the dates (e.g., Middle Bronze IIB). The 124 contributors are international, though mostly Israeli, but none of the entries are signed; nor do they have bibliographies. The text boasts the latest scholarship, but its arrangement is problematic. Finding the entry for Nazareth is easy enough, but would anyone but an expert in this field know to look under "Qasile" to find information on a four-acre site, currently in a northern suburb of Tel Aviv, whose ancient name is unknown? There are a few cross references to help with this problem--an asterisk identifies any word with its own separate entry--but not many. Despite its significant limitations, this is recommended as the most up-to-date and comprehensive one-volume resource available on this subject.--David Bourquin, California State Univ., San Bernardino ...
