Our image of ancient Israel cannot escape the influence of biblical tales, but how far is the story we read in the Bible reflected in the archaelogical record? In this detailed survey of six centuries of material and historical evidence, the author looks at social structure, towns and villages, agriculture, trade and industry, warfare, language, religion and art, in an attempt to discover the truth about the Israelites.
