The book presents the results of a complete and detailed archaeological survey in the area of ancient Shechem and Samaria.

It is a detailed and thorough archaeological and historical work, which deals with the most important area for Biblical and other researches. This territory and its survey is a most valuable tool for every scholar involved in Bible, Theology, Ancient Near Eastern history and other schools concerned.
