This collection of essays aims to provide an overview of Jerusalem's history from earliest times down to the rise of Islam, priviledging archaeological data above biblical information. Papers look at demography and onomastics, then at Jerusalem in Egyptian, Babylonian and Assyrian texts, before going on to consider the archaeological evidence chronologically.
