Biblical archaeologists have always been the
"black sheep" in historical circles. They, and their researches, are
given validity only if their theories and subsequent proofs discredit
the divine aspect of the Hebrew and Christian holy books. E. Raymond
Capt is the single, most powerful ally of an accurate view of history,
a history recognizing the Hebrew peoples as contributors to, and often
catalysts of, world events.
Capt does an excellent job tracing the 10 "lost
tribes" of Israel into the European continent, citing recovered
antiquities and more recent discoveries in existing collections, such
as at the British Museum, covering dates up to roughly 150 BC. Also, he
gives an adequate account of the origin of the basic European "tribes"
such as the Germans, the various Celts, etc., picking up their story
ca. AD 600.
