Chronicles of the Land: Archaeology in The Israel Museum, Jerusalem
Edited by Michal Dayagi-Mendels and Silvia Rozenberg
Situated in a strategic location at the crossroads of north and south, east and west, the Land of Israel has been home to people of different cultures for more than one and a half million years. This comprehensive, richly illustrated volume was produced on the occasion of the renewal of the Museum’s permanent archaeology exhibition in 2010, and its structure reflects the exhibition’s seven galleries devoted to objects discovered in this land. Like the exhibition, the book sheds light on the cultures and peoples that had a profound impact on this region, from the dawn of civilization until the Ottoman period. One section focuses on themes that are richly represented in the galleries – glass, coins, and early Hebrew writing – and the final section is devoted to the Dead Sea Scrolls, housed in the Shrine of the Book, which count among the most important discoveries of the 20th century. The book’s beautiful photographs bring to life the artifacts, most of which are long-term loans from the Israel Antiquities Authority.SHOW MORE
