Flinders Petrie, known for his extensive work in Egypt, was also a pioneer of scientific archaeology in Palestine early in the 20th century through his excavations at Tell el-Hesi, Tell el-‘Ajjul, and elsewhere. This volume offers a critical analysis of Petrie’s contributions to the archaeology of Palestine and the role his collection of artifacts plays in modern studies of the ancient Near East. It also includes a full color catalog of 270 objects, dating from Chalcolithic to Ottoman times, excavated by Petrie.
