by Miriam C Davis, Dame Kathleen Kenyon Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Dame Kathleen Kenyon book, Dame Kathleen Kenyon has always been a larger-than-life figure, likely the most influential woman archaeologist of the 20th century. In the first full-length biography of Kenyon, Miriam Davis recounts not only her many achievements in the field but also her personal side, known to very few of her contemporaries. Her public side is a catalog of major successes: discovering the oldest city at Jericho with its amazing collection of plastered skulls; untangling the archaeological complexities of ancient Jerusalem and identifying the original City of David; participating in the discipline’s most famous all-woman excavation at Great Zimbabwe. Her development (with Sir Mortimer Wheeler) of stratigraphic trenching methods has been universally emulated by archaeologists for over half a century. Her private life—her childhood as daughter of the director of the British Museum, her accidental choice of a career in archaeology, her working at bombed sites in London during the blitz, and her solitary retirement to Wales—are generally unknown. Davis provides a balanced and illuminating picture of both the public Dame Kenyon and the private person.

by A. D. Tushingham, Excavations In Jerusalem 1961 1967 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Excavations In Jerusalem 1961 1967 book, "The publication of the final reports of the late Dame Kathleen Kenyon's excavations of ancient Jerusalem takes a significant step forward with the appearance of this volume. It concentrates on finds outside the walls of the Iron Age city, of which the most important are the enigmatic deposits in Caves I and II on the south-east hill. Itzhak Eshel's study provides a thorough comparative analysis of the large quantity of pottery found in them, as a basis for establishing their date and purpose. Supplementary studies of the pottery and other material from these caves, not least variations between the deposits found in them, throw further light on their function." "Among the varied information on extramural cemeteries assembled here, the late third millennium cemetery on the Mount of Olives, first discovered over a century ago, particularly adds to our knowledge of Jerusalem in antiquity."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
