The Biblical Archaeologist (1938-1997)[edit]

Near Eastern Archaeology was formerly known as The Biblical Archaeologist. The journal's first editor was G. Ernest Wright, who established the publication in 1938 out of "the need for a readable, non-technical, yet thoroughly reliable account of archaeological discoveries as they are related to the Bible..."[1] The first sixty volumes were published under the title of The Biblical Archaeologist until 1998, when the title was changed to reflect the publication's broader geographic, chronological, and intellectual scope.
