For many today, history holds little application to modern existence, and so we are both biblically and historically uninformed. Biblical archaeology—the systematic study of the material remains of human behavior in biblical history—provides a helpful corrective on those two fronts. In this full-color handbook, archaeologist and professor John D. Currid shows how his field of study plays its part in restoring our understanding of ancient life and events.
With the aid of photographs, maps, charts, and study questions, you will
• gain overview of the geography of the land of the Bible;
• take a tour through archaeological sites throughout the land;
• learn about discoveries in agriculture, architecture, ceramics, burial practices, and more.
