But we know a lot more about him from a record he left us, referred to as the Mesha inscription, or Moabite Stone. It was discovered in Dhiban, Jordan, in 1868 be a French Anglican medical missionary be the name of F.A. Klein. The essays in this book discuss the inscription and the insights it provides into Mesha's life and the Iron Age Kingdom of Moab.
