This volume brings together a number of scholars who use archaeology as a tool to question the assumptions too easily made by historians and biblical scholars about the past. It combines essays from both archaeologists and biblical scholars. While the subject matter across the two disciplines differs widely in both geographical and chronological area covered, they share a critical stance in examining the relationship between 'dirt' archaeology and the biblical world, as presented to us through written sources.
