Review of Lawler, Under Jerusalem

HISTORY OF ARCHAEOLOGY: 150 years of excavating Jerusalem: A rich layer cake. Book: Under Jerusalem by Andrew Lawler (RANDY ROSENTHAL, Jerusalem Post).
In Under Jerusalem, American author Andrew Lawler tells the story behind a century and a half of excavating the world’s most contested city, paying as much attention to the aboveground politics as to the subterranean discoveries. Part history, part journalism and part adventure story, the book is nearly as fun to read as exploring the underground passages it describes.
