Shifting Sands: The Rise and Fall of Biblical Archaeology

Thomas W. Davis


This book traces the interaction of biblical studies and archaeology in Palestine. It highlights the field aspects of biblical archaeology, and clarifies the theoretical and methodological framework of the original excavators. Although biblical archaeology has been dismissed in favor of the new paradigm of Syro-Palestinian archaeology, the recognition of its positive contributions would restore a much needed balance to the current understanding of the growth and development of the field.

Keywords: Palestine, biblical archaeology, Syro-Palestinian archaeology
