This volume is devoted primarily to a synthesis of more recent findings pertaining to the physical and botanical environment of Tell Hesban and the region which lies approximately within a 10-km radius of the site. The impetus for the research presented was the conviction that inferences about the state of environmental conditions in antiquity must be informed by a thorough understanding of the present-day environment. Detailed here is the climate, the geology, the flora, and the paleoenvironment of Hesban and its environs. Includes 26 figures, 42 plates, and 9 tables.
