Having previously enjoyed Yadin's account of the excavations of Masada I picked up this, apparently similar, book upon espying it at a used bookstore. As is often the case, there was a long period between its purchase--probably over a decade ago--and its reading.What this book recounts are a series of cave explorations on the west bank of the Dead Sea conducted by Yadin and colleagues during 1960 and 1961, with reference to earlier examinations of the same locations by scholars in the fifties an [...]

This coffee table classic of archeology and Judaica will be an intriguing read for anyone interested in archeology and/or the history of Israel.It describes the fruitful 1960 expedition by Israel's most eminent archaeologist of the time, Yigael Yadin, himself a hero of the War of Independence in 149 to canyon near the Dead Sea, where he discovered letters and artefacts giving us rich insight into the life and times of Israel great warrior-prince who led the Third Great Revolt against Roman occup [...]

This book explores the history of the 2nd Jewish revolt against Rome under the warlord Bar-Kokhba, interspersed with the story of the archaeological expedition that discovered the final refuge his followers fled to before being wiped out. Both the history of the rebellion and the archaelogy behind it are interesting, and the book is littered throughout with photos and drawings of what was found in the caves where Bar-Kokhba's rebels hid. It's not a dry slog of a history book either; I had troubl [...]

This was such a wonderful find in university. I first stumbled upon it when writing a paper comparing the archaeological remains of Bar Kokhba revolt sites. Hello Yigael my new best friend. Even though it was supposed to be just a quick reference work, I ended up reading the whole thing and went back to it again for a couple other papers. When I found it at a used bookstore years later, I had to have it. It may be a little dated, but there's just something about Yadin's work. Love it.

Long time ago, early 80s. Good read, I recall.
