This study is the first detailed synthesis of the epigraphic and archaeological evidence for ancient Damascus in this generation. Pitard surveys the geographical setting of the area, its development as the land of Apum in the Middle Bronze Age, growth in the Late Bronze Age, and the emergence of the powerful city-state in the Iron Age, including its relations with the Israelite kingdoms, and finally its fall at the hand of the Assyrians.
