Description: Ami Mazar has gained a reputation as one of the most prolific and reliable archaeologists doing work in Israel during the last 40 years. Not only has he participated in and directed excavations at many sites, his professional standards are of the first order, and what's more, his publication record is enviable: he has never begun a new major project before the final publication of the previous excavation was well underway. Here, more than 55 colleagues gather to honor him with a wide range of essays, organized in 7 sections: Early Bronze Age Studies; Middle and Late Bronze Age Studies; Philistine/Sea Peoples Studies; Iron Age Studies;
Historical, Biblical, and Epigraphic Studies; Jerusalem Studies; Post–Iron Age Studies.
Subjects: Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Archaeology
