"Three Stones Make a Wall is an experienced archaeologist's fast-paced and fascinating account of the field's ‘greatest hits,' one that will engage all readers no matter what their background."—Jodi Magness, author of The Archaeology of the Holy Land

"In this up-to-date and eminently readable introduction to the field, Eric Cline, one of the world's foremost archaeologists, gives people a chance to peek behind the curtain of the mysterious and exciting world of archaeology. Readers will learn about famous sites and discoveries around the world as well as how to find, dig, and date ancient artifacts without ever leaving the house."--Candida Moss, author of The Myth of Persecution: How Early Christians Invented a Story of Martyrdom

"Cline provides an excellent history of both civilizations and the archaeological process--his knowledge of the subject is second to none."--Robert R. Cargill, author of The Cities That Built the Bible

"An accurate and engaging picture of archaeology past and present. This book fills a real need within the discipline, as it properly presents archaeology to the public in a way that has not been done before."—Rachel Hallote, author of Bible, Map, and Spade: The American Palestine Exploration Society, Frederick Jones Bliss, and the Forgotten Story of Early American Biblical Archeology
