bookshelves: bible

A fascinating and engaging book for anyone interested in Syria-Palestine/the Holy Land/whatever you want to call it. It's also a great introduction to the practice of archaeology in Syria-Palestine (also called biblical archaeology by some) and its political roots and ramifications. Deals with the national politics involved and the politics of the academics and field archaeologists - and there are some strange characters digging pots in the middle east!
