This volume presents a visual, pictorial history of Jerusalem from the most ancient records to the most up-to-date excavations. The narrative text is accompanied by hundreds of specially prepared drawings, maps, and photographs that illuminate every aspect of human settlement from topography, water sources, and agriculture to security, architecture, and historical sites from the Temples of Solomon, Nehemiah, and Herod to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher and the Dome of the Rock.

About the Author:

Meir Ben-Dov, archaeologist and historian, has participated in many excavations in the Holy Land and served as field director for the most important modern excavations in and around the Old City of Jerusalem. He lectures on Roman and Byzantine art and Muslim archaeology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and other universities. He is the author of seven books, among them In the Shadow of the Temple.
