The Walls of the Temple Mount
By Eilat Mazar
This new colorful, oversized two-volume work is not only unusual; it's extraordinary. It records every stone in the walls of Jerusalem's holiest site, the Temple Mount, and explains their significance - the gates, the arches, the secret passages, the sealed-up entrances, the underground tunnels and more. It documents the history of the site’s construction - from the eastern wall in the First Temple Period to the renovations and additions to the south and east by Herod the Great in the Second Temple Period. Volume II consists of large, colorful, remarkably detailed drawings and plans. This elegant, beautifully crafted boxed set is a perfect gift for that special someone with an interest in history or for your favorite school, church, synagogue or library.
Dr. Eilat Mazar, of the Institute of Archaeology of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, has excavated in ancient Jerusalem for over 30 years. She directs archaeological excavations on the summit of the City of David and at the southern wall of the Temple Mount.
