Jerusalem is both the best-known and the most intensively studied of biblical sites, although ancient literary sources are frustratingly unclear about features of the city's topography. This book reveals how archaeological evidence can supplement these texts to tell Jerusalem's early history; it covers the period described in the Hebrew scriptures, from the city's origins, through prosperity in the 7th century to the mid-point of the Hellenistic period in 200 BCE. Cities of the Biblical World series.
