Summary note
Professor Mazar viewed the excavations at the Temple Mount as the apex of his scientific contribution. Now his granddaughter, Dr. Eilat Mazar, continues his work and is heading the extensive project of publishing the findings from the sites. Dr. Eilat Mazar was part of the excavation team in the City of David from 1981-1985 that was headed by Professor Yigal Shiloh and from 1986-87 she lead the excavations at the Ophel on behalf of the Institute of Archeology at the Hebrew University. Dr. Mazar has been involved in archaeological research in Jerusalem for many years and has publishd numerous articles. She has written this guide in a language that everyone can understand without comprising scientific accuracy or the high level of research. This guide encompasses 3000 years of Jerusalem history and explores every period including descriptions of meaningful pieces from each era, accompanied by detailed explanations and attractive photographs and drawings. This guide is a masterful piece of work that allows the general audience a closer look at the past -- the Temple Mount in all of its original glory as it is now again revealed to our eyes. — Publisher description.
