Summary

Radiocarbon dating is one of the key discoveries of the twentieth century. Archaeologists have recently begun to employ high precision radiocarbon dating to explore the chronology of the Iron Age in the Levant. Biblical archaeology - revolutionized by radiocarbon dating and statistical modelling - is leading the way in which archaeologists approach material culture. 'The Bible and Radiocarbon Dating' brings together a leading team of archaeologists, Egyptologists, Biblical scholars and radiocarbon dating specialists to examine the interface between archaeology, science-based research methods and the Bible. The book examines the dating of sites across the East Mediterranean, Jordon and Israel to test hypotheses concerning the historicity of the Old Testament.
