Each of these eight lectures by Professor William G. Dever was created specially for readers of Biblical Archaeology Review. Each is a gem. The lectures are illustrated with pictures, maps and plans from Professor Dever’s personal photos as well as photos from leading archaeological photographers. This course is for the beginner as well as the seasoned reader of Biblical Archaeology Review and for everyone in between.
