Eyewitness Bible Lands

Discover the Story of the Holy Land

From the early ancestors of the middle stone ages to the Greeks and Romans in 40 BCE, countless civilizations and people have lived in the eastern Mediterranean area known as the Bible Lands. Discover the story of the Holy Lands and the people who lived there before the time of Christ in DK Eyewitness Books: Bible Lands, now available in paperback for the first time.

Learn what kind of jewelry and pottery the Canaanites traded with Egypt and see armor from ancient Assyria. Explore the different gods and goddesses each civilization worshiped, how the people of the Bible Lands defended their cities, and more in DK Eyewitness Books: Bible Lands.

Each revised Eyewitness book retains the stunning artwork and photography from the groundbreaking original series, but the text has been reduced and reworked to speak more clearly to younger readers. On every colorful page: Vibrant annotated photographs and the integrated text-and-pictures approach that make Eyewitness a perennial favorite of parents, teachers, and school-age kids.
