Peter Connolly's book brings to life the people and events of a crucial period in the history of the world. Spanning a hundred years that culminate in the fall of Masada in 73 AD, Connolly reconstructs the daily lives--domestic, religious, and military--of the Jewish people in Judea, Galilee, and Jerusalem, mostly under the reign of the great King Herod. The book's fascinating illustrations, based on exhaustive up-to-date research, recreate minute details with stunning precision. The volume features a tour of the geography of the eastern Mediterranean and a review of archaeological excavations and discoveries in the region. For young adults interested in Jewish history, the ancient world, and the beginnings of Christianity, this book offers thorough information with unique clarity.
