Abstract:

"The Wilderness of Zin, first published as the Annual of the Palestine Exploration Fund for 1914/15, describes an incredible archaeological survey carried out as cover for a British military mapping operation in southern Palestine just before the outbreak of World War One. Leonard Woolley and T.E. Lawrence were both already swept up in the War when their work was published. The most comprehensive account of the region at the time, it is still a most important work ninety years later. This edition also includes previously unpublished material from the PEF archives, a preface by Jonathan Tubb and a new introduction by Sam Moorhead, all of which provide a fuller picture of this remarkable episode."--Jacket.
