Fascinating Pictures of Archaeological Sites Tell the History of the Land of Israel
Albatross Aerial Photography Ltd – the photographer Dubi Tal and pilot Moni HaramatI, in cooperation with the Israel Antiquities Authority,have published a new book: Flights into Biblical Archaeology, which combines aerial and land photographs of the sites together with photographs of ancient artifacts and artistic creations that have not yet been made public. The unique texts that accompany the photographs were written by Shimon Gibson, professor of archaeology at the University of North Carolina.
The book Flights into Biblical Archaeology is a journey into the colorful past of the Land of Israel; a journey across thousands of years of history which is both a visual and spiritual experience.
The breathtaking aerial photographs allow the reader to participate in the experience of exposing the past and discovering details and meanings which can no longer been seen by the eye of the observer on the ground. While at the same time the special stories of the archaeological sites that conceal the historical secrets of the country are laid out before the reader.
In addition to their aesthetic value, the pictures provide a great deal of important information about the archaeological compounds and the environment in which they are located. Next to each site mentioned in the book is a map with a dot that denotes its location and provides the reader with a point of reference relative to the site.
The book is meant for the general public and is an asset worthy of lovers of artistic photography, scholars and professional people, as well as tourists and the general public.
