During the 19th and 20th centuries a wealth of sites in Galilee from pre- and protohistory onwards has become known, mainly through surveys. Making use of additional identification sources such as historical documents from the Biblical till the Ottoman periods and pilgrims' travelogues of every faith, the author has made an inventory of all ancient sites now known in Galilee. The book is divided into 32 regions, each represented by a "map," Each map has its sites numbered. The accompanying lists explain all sites chronologically, and identify the names the sites have carried in subsequent periods. An invaluable geographical and historical reference tool for all those interested in the physical history of Galilee from pre- and protohistory up to the present.
