Macalister's 'Excavation of Gezer'

BorderStone Press recently republished R.A.S. Macalister's "Excavation of Gezer." This hefty volume is filled with maps, pictures and descriptions of thousands of artifacts, and Macalister's account of the history and excavation of the ancient city of Gezer, located between Jerusalem and the modern city of Tel-Aviv. This book is of special interest to New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary due to the ongoing excavation of the large Canaanite water system at Gezer. This is a tremendous reference source for background information on Biblical times, providing a unique window into a distant culture.
