Description

Busayra, identified with the Biblical site of Bozrah, is the largest Iron Age site in southern Jordan. First discovered in 1806, the site was subject to full and detailed excavation in the 1970s by the late Crystal Bennett. This volume forms the final report of the site and includes detailed chapters on architecture and stratigraphy, pottery and small finds such as bone, ivory and metal objects, stone vessels, beads, figurines, coins and faience, glass and crystal. Occupied from the late 8th century BC to c.300/200 BC, Bienkowski explores the links between Biblical Bozrah and Busayra, the source of Busayra's power and its position as a major administrative and religious centre of the kingdom of Edom.
