Item Description...
Overview
I came across this book while I was preparing to join an archaeological expedition in Israel. I knew that the site had a long history of occupation and I wanted to get a basic overview of the cultures and artifacts associated with the region from prehistory to modern times. This book was exactly what I was looking for. It describes each major period and provides photographs of significant sites and characteristic artifacts. It also provides a history of the past few centuries of archaeology in the region, the approaches taken, and new techniques. The level of detail is very adequate for an overview without bogging down the reader. Having this background helped me get a lot more out of the dig.

Publishers Description
The public s continuing fascination with Near Eastern archaeology has often been frustrated by highly technical and specialized studies. This volume masterfully rectifies that situation. Here, in concise and readable form, is a comprehensive introduction to Palestinian archaeology (the region encompassed by the State of Israel, the West Bank, and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan) from the Stone Age to the Islamic period. Readers are provided with clear explanations of unfamiliar terms, geographical locations, dates, archaeological procedures, links with biblical text, and the like. Photo illustrations enhance the presentation throughout. Selected bibliographies for each chapter direct readers to appropriate resources for additional information. Through the Ages of Palestinian Archaeology constitutes a handy reference both for those already familiar with archaeology and for those who know little of why archaeologists do what they do and what can be learned from their work and their discoveries. Walter E. Rast is Professor in the Department of Theology at Valparaiso University in Indiana. He is second vice-president of the American Schools of Oriental Research and former editor of the Bulletin of the American Schools of Oriental Research. With R. Thomas Schaub, he is author/editor of The Expedition to the Dead Sea Plain Series whose first volume, Bab ed-Dhra, is now in print.

Excellent piece!  Nov 4, 1998
Rast provides the reader with a very understandable approach to archaeology and how it relates to the bible. As a 3rd year student majoring in Anthropology with interests in Religious Studies, I found this book to be an indispensible tool in all aspects. This book is recommendable to all archaeology enthusiasts, or simply for those searching for the scientific "truth" in the Bible.
