About the Authors
  • The Palestine Exploration Fund was created in 1865, with the purpose of carrying out exploration and excavation in the area of the Near East then known as Palestine, and publishing the results of any discoveries. This 1871 book sums up the main results of the Fund's work in Jerusalem, contributing 'to our knowledge of the Holy City and the sacred localities around it' and providing a context for studying the Bible. The first part contains an introduction by Dean Stanley of Westminster, a topographical and historical survey of Jerusalem, and accounts of excavations in different parts of the city. The second part consists of reports on the wider area, including the Sea of Galilee and the Sinai Peninsula. The illustrated work is an invaluable account of the operations of the Fund and the state of archaeological knowledge of the Holy Land in the middle part of the nineteenth century.
