Digging Up Jericho represents the results of a two-day conference, held at UCL in 2015, with contributions by 22 internationally-renounced scholars, including the Institute's Beverley Butler and Stuart Laidlaw. Edited by Rachael Sparks, Bill Finlayson, Bart Wagemakers and Josef Briffa, it is the first volume to offer a holistic perspective on the research and public value of the site of Jericho – an iconic site with a long and impressive history stretching from the Epipalaeolithic to the present day.
