Understanding Biblical Archaeology from Carta By Paul H. Wright
An Introductory Atlas
Many of the places mentioned in the Bible can be seen to this day. Cities like Jerusalem, Tiberias, Bethlehem and Jericho have lasted through the ages. Others like Megiddo, Hazor and Gezer are attested to by their ruins. Over one hundred years of scientific archaeology have provided us with greater insight into the lives and customs of the ancient peoples who inhabited the region.
