The Penguin Historical Atlas of the Bible Lands charts the fascinating history of the peoples and cultures of the biblical lands, from prehistory to the present day. While the main focus is on the events depicted in the Old and the New Testaments, the Atlas uniquely places the Bible in its historical context by examining earlier developments in such as the emergence of farming and of the first empires in the region, and by continuing after the biblical period to explore the Islamic conquests, the Crusades, the British Mandate and the current struggle between Israelis and Palestinians. Coverage of the familiar events of one of the world's greatest books is supplemented by features on the alphabet (a Canaanite development), the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Zionist movement, as well as by site studies of Jericho, Lachish, Masada and others.
