The new permanent exhibition of archaeology at the Israel Museum, The Samuel and Saidye Bronfman Archeology Wing, is dedicated to the many civilizations that have left their imprint on the Land. It takes visitors on a rich journey along the path of history, from Prehistoric times to the Ottoman Period. The majority of the artifacts on display come from controlled archaeological excavations, and are on extended loan from the Israel Antiquities Authority. These objects are complemented by artifacts in the Museum's holdings, gifted by generous private collectors and donors. This catalogue provides a small taste of the exhibition's rich and varied treasures.
