A star-studded cast of Israeli scholars surveys in this volume the overall accomplishments of Israeli archaeology since the founding of the state in 1948. It is a dazzling accomplishment. From the stone age to the Crusader period and everything in between, the story is told by the leading scholars in the field. A special section focuses on Jerusalem, written by the directors of major Jerusalem excavations. A concluding section gives a historical perspective to the archaeological materials. A special attraction of the English edition of this section is an important paper by Yigael Yadin in which he presents for the first time a new historical perspective on the Lachish Letters.
