In the July/August 2011 issue of Biblical Archaeology Review, Hershel Shanks’s First Person dealt with Ronny Reich’s new book, Excavating the City of David. In Reich’s book he commented on Eilat Mazar’s excavations, also in the City of David, where she claims to have found King David’s palace. Reich objected to Mazar’s archaeology methods and questionable use of archaeology and the Bible--predicting that she would find David’s palace and then conducting an excavation in which she claimed to have located exactly what she set out to find.
