Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a breathtaking compendium of facts about life in ancient Galilee, based solidly on archaeological finds and clearly laid out with impressive detail. There are helpful drawings and photographs throughout. The material on stoneware, ossuaries, earthworks, fortifications, house foundations, olive oil presses, and many other subjects, including later churches and monasteries, is rich and revealing. The author's conclusions as to cultural developments are well reasoned and well researched. The book is an invaluable resource whether you want to read about the individual tools found in an ancient blacksmith shop or the construction of the old roads. We need more books like this about ancient life, books that contain real data. Highly recommended.
