Item description for Towns in Ancient Israel and in the Southern Levant (Palaestina Antiqua 10) (Palestina Antiqua) by C.H.J. De Geus...
This study aims to provide readers of the Bible with some idea of what a Biblical town in the 9th-7th century BC was like from an archaeologist's point of view. Although not completely dismissing the people, social, cultural, political and economic life that determined or guided the nature and development of a given town, de Geus focuses primarily on the architectural environment. With an emphasis on description rather than explanation, this book explores the fortifications, gates, acropolis/citadels, sanctuaries and temples, tombs, fields and gardens, and town planning that made up Biblical towns such as Megiddo, Beer-sheba, Jerusalem and Hazor.
