Climaxing a major excavation campaign in 1992-95, the book treats the citys archaeology, history, and culture comprehensively, from urban development and economy to epigraphy, sculpture, and ceramics.

Papers on Caesarea and religious thought discuss Origen, Eusebius, rabbinic literature, Jewish and Christian academies, and the famous library. Spectacular discoveries, some published here for the first time, include Herods amphitheater and royal palace, later headquarters of Pontius Pilate and other governors- Roman and Byzantine baths- the Temple to Roma and Augustus- and notably the artificial harbor Sebastos, explored under water, a monument of ancient technology and engineering.

Included are fold-out site maps and color aerial photographs showing the latest excavations and the entire site.
