Picks and Pans Review: Jerusalem: An Archaeological Biography
by Hershel Shanks
Solomon's stables were built 10 centuries after the great king died, Shanks writes; Gethsamene was not a garden but a cave. The author reveals that and more as he traces the history—in carved stone, molded clay and wrought iron—of this endlessly intriguing city. A lucid text and abundant photos, archaeological plans and architectural drawings of sites cherished by three major religions make Jerusalem as accessible to the layman as it is to the scholar (Random House $45)
