As the leading figure in New Archaeology, David Rohl has been at the forefront of the movement to discover the archaeological evidence for events described in the Old Testament which we have come to think of as myths. His previous books, Test of Time and Legend presented the arguments and counter-arguments. In From Eden to Exile this discursive approach is replaced by historical storytelling, which follows the sequence of events from the rise of Neolithic civilisation in a region now part of Iran which inspired the story of the Garden of Eden, through Noah, Abraham and the sojourn in Egypt, to the fall of Jericho, the dual kingdoms of the Promised Land and lastly, the exile in Babylon, where the stories of the Old Testament were collated into something very like their present form. A fascinating history book that will appeal to anyone with an interest in ancient history, religion and archaeology.

When it comes to exploring, David Rohl makes Indiana Jones look like an under-achiever ... Rohl is Britain's highest profile Egyptologist - Daily Express

David Rohl ... stood the accepted chronology of ancient Egypt on its head by claiming that shortening the pharaonic time line by up to three hundred years results in perfect matches between Egyptian history and biblical narratives ... He argued his case in a controversial best seller A Test of Time and the subsequent TV series 'Pharaohs and Kings' which made him Britain's highest-profile archaeologist and the centre of much scholarly feuding - Jerusalem Report
