The earliest part of the Bible is recognized as the foundation-stone of three great religions, yet, archeologists and historians have failed to find any evidence to confirm the events. This book talks about the movement to discover the archaeological evidence for events described in the Old Testament, which we have come to think of as myths.
The stories of the Old Testament retold from a modern, historical perspective As the leading figure in the New Archaeology, David Rohl has been at the forefront of the movement to discover the archaeological evidence for events described in the Old Testament which we have come to think of as myths. His previous books, The Test of Time and Legend presented the arguments and counter-arguments. In The Lost Testament this discursive approach is replaced by historical story-telling, which follows the sequence of events from the rise of Neolithic civilisation a region now part of Iran which inspired the story of the Garden of Eden, through Noah, Abraham and the sojourn in Egypt, to the fall of Jericho, the dual kingdoms of the Promised Land and lastly, the exile in Babylon, where the stories of the Old Testament were collated into something very like their present form.
David holds a University College London degree in Egyptology and Ancient History, and has excavated at Kadesh-on-the-Orontes with the expedition of the Institute of Archaeology. He was writer and presenter of the internationally acclaimed television documentary series 'Pharaohs and Kings- A Biblical Quest'.
