Dig into the history beneath the Holy City
In 1863, a French senator arrived in Jerusalem hoping to unearth relics dating to biblical times. Digging deep underground, he discovered an ancient grave that, he claimed, belonged to an Old Testament queen.
Since that time, Jerusalem has drawn a global cast of fortune seekers, missionaries, and archaeologists, all of them eager to extract the biblical past from beneath the city’s streets and shrines. Their efforts have had profound effects, not only on our understanding of Jerusalem’s history, but on its hotly disputed present.
Under Jerusalem takes readers into the tombs, tunnels, and trenches of the Holy City. With clarity and verve, it brings to life the indelible characters who have investigated this subterranean landscape.
