Description of materials, primarily of the Iron Age, excavated by the Oriental Institute and associated somehow with the religion of ancient Megiddo (modern Tell el-Mutesellim). The volume is arranged by types rather than in chronological order. The second chapter is concerned with interpretation of structures of Strata IV and V within the sacred area; chapters three and four discuss sanctuary furnishings and human and animal figurines. A chapter by Robert M. Engberg discusses the origin of the proto-Ionic capitals found at Megiddo.
