Chris Aldrich So far a fascinating account of a multi-season excavation of a late 11th and early 10th centuries BCE city. They do an excellent job of teasing out of the biblical, mythical, and archaeological sources for setting the story of their work. They also lay out several alternate and competing contemporary theories surrounding their work.

For those who haven't studied archaeology, they also do a great job of discussing the evolution of the topic and its application to their particular example, so you not only get the particular story they're telling, but also a relatively firm framework for how archaeology is practiced in a modern setting.

This is a great example of science and humanities communication. I can't wait to finish out the book.
