Biblical Archaeology and Ancient Israel

Looking for a good book on biblical archaeology?

If you've ever been to Israel, you know how archaeology is rather a national pastime. Just as in America, where citizens take pride in their history as shown in places like Valley Forge and Mount Vernon, and display the original of the Declaration of Independence in the National Archives, Israelis take even greater pride in places like the Western Wall and Masada, and display the Dead Sea Scrolls in the Israel Museum. (The difference is that the National Archives actually shows a copy of the Declaration, not the real one, behind the glass, just to be on the safe side.)

Books on Biblical Archaeology and Ancient Israel

Here are books on Archaeology (Biblical, that is) and Ancient History (Jewish, that is). We've included books by respected Israeli archaeologists and others in related fields, as well as books on Judaism in antiquity in and outside of Israel. You'll find books on ancient synagogues, on animals in daily life in ancient Israel, and wine production in ancient Israel, among others. Oh, and if you're looking for books on the modern State of Israel, click here.
