Although biblical archaeology concentrates on excavating and interpreting biblical sites, archaeological material of either the pre- or post-biblical era is often uncovered as well. ,雖然聖經考古主要集中在挖掘和詮釋聖經遺址,考古材料,無論是前或後聖經時代,往往查出為好。 For example, the excavations of the American archaeologist James Pritchard at Gibeon, in addition to revealing the rock-cut water system mentioned in 2 Samuel, produced important pottery from a Bronze Age cemetery.例如,發掘工作的​​美國考古學家詹姆斯普里查德在基遍,除了揭示了岩石切割水系統中提到的第2薩穆埃爾,產生了重要的陶器,從青銅時代墓地。 Excavation at the important biblical site of Jericho has revealed little of significance dating from later than the 2d millennium BC.挖掘中的重要聖經網站的傑里科透露一點的意義,可以追溯到從不遲二維公元前。 Its remains from 6 millennia earlier, however, show a large walled city that is the oldest known settlement in the world.然而,它仍然是由6幾千年來比較一個帶圍牆的大的城市,是在世界上已知最古老的結算。
