From Library Journal:

Written by two members of archaeological expeditions which have excavated at Caesarea, the ancient city on the coast of Israel built by Herod the Great, this book tells the story of the great city, from its beginnings to its destruction in the 13th century. Readers discover this past through archaeologists' eyes, as the text considers not only artifacts and written sources but the processes by which archaeologists reconstruct the past. A companion volume to a traveling exhibition of Caesarean artifacts, this is very highly recommended for both its clarity and creativity. It should appeal to a wide audience, and is ideal for beginning students in archaeology. History Book Club selection.Joan W. Gartland, Detroit P.L.

Store Description

Trilby & Co. Books is located in Northern California. The company was founded years ago by a Shetland Sheepdog named Trilby. Trilby's message to her family was brief and direct - the sale of books would increase disposable income and improve the quality of provisions in her food dish. My name is McTavish (picture at left). I am the current CEO of this company, and I approve of her message. Oh, by the way, my speciality is literature, with an emphasis on first editions and signed books.
