This volume presents an analysis of small finds excavated at Tell Hesban, conveniently compiling information from all periods of Hesban into one study. Invaluable insights can be gained about the ancient human mind and the cultural context of the time periods. The study looks at Hesban's ancient technologies, trade relations, social and political structures, military innovations, education, and diet.

Reports are provided by a spectrum of specialists and deal with Arabic, Greek, Latin and Ammonite inscriptions; ceramic figurines; scarabs; glass fragments; domestic stone objects and iron samples; textile tools; cosmetic objects and jewelry; and coins, all findings from the Tell Hesban excavations.
