What is Biblical Archaeology?

ASKING THE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS: What is biblical archaeology? [Extract] (Eric H. Cline, OUP Blog).
In the following excerpt from Biblical Archaeology: A Very Short Introduction, Eric H. Cline explains the interests of biblical archaeologists, and explores the types of questions that those in the field set out to answer.
This book was published back in 2009, so I'm surprised to see OUP publishing an excerpt from it now. But it's nice to have anyway.
