Archaeologists are scientists who study the ruins of ancient buildings
and ancient cities. Sometimes these ancient sites have been
covered by soil or have had newer buildings
constructed over them. Archaeologists have carefully searched for clues
about the cities, temples and homes of the Israelites.
