In this groundbreaking work of archaeology and history, Karl Peters explores the elusive kingdom of Ophir, which is said to have been the source of the gold that King Solomon used to build the Temple in Jerusalem. Drawing on a wide range of sources, from ancient texts to modern excavations, Peters pieces together the story of this legendary land and its relationship to the wider world of the Bronze Age. The result is a fascinating and illuminating portrait of a lost civilization and its enduring legacy.
