Here is an online archaeological book, in Adobe PDF format, that I wish I had found a couple weeks ago, ‘East of the Jordan – Territories and Sites of the Hebrew Scriptures’ by Burton MadDonald.
From the introduction of the book:
“One cannot do archaeological work in Jordan for long and have an interest in biblical studies without raising questions relative to the location of the biblical places and events that are so much part of the narratives, for example, of Genesis, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Josha, Judgest, 1 and 2 Chronicles, and the major prohets. And this interest is one that Christians, Jews and Muslims share. But is is not only the student of the Bible who wishes to know the identity of the sites that he/she is surveying or excavating.”
Great stuff, only it’s 295 pages long, too much to print out at 2:37 AM the day before we take off on our journey.by
