The aim of the survey on which this book is based was to make a record of all buildings constructed in Palestine during the medieval and Ottoman periods. The survey area covers the modern state of Israel excluding West Jerusalem and Ramla (which are covered in separate publications). The WestBank and Gaza will be the subject of Volume II (in preparation).Although Muslim buildings in Palestine have been discussed in previous surveys this is the only one that has focused exclusively upon Islamic architecture. The aim of the survey was to be as inclusive as possible in order to establish an overall architectural context for Muslim Palestine.The archives of the Department of Antiquities of the Government of Palestine (1918-48) are the principal source used for the location and identification of buildings in this book. In addition to valuable field notes the archives also contain special reports including some by K. A. C. Creswell. Thesehave been published in full where appropriate.

England im 19. Jahrhundert: zwei ungewöhnliche Frauen und ein spektakulärer Fund am Strand England, 1830: Elizabeth Philpot, eine junge Frau aus besseren Kreisen, deren Familienerbe nicht zu einem standesgemäßen Leben in London reicht, wird von ihrem Bruder in den kleinen südenglischen Küstenort Lyme Regis abgeschoben. Was ihr zunächst wie eine Verbannung vorkommt, erweist sich als glückliche Fügung, denn am Strand nehmen seltsame Steine sie völlig gefangen: Fossilien. Und hier in Lyme Regis begegnet sie Mary, einem Mädchen aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen, das die Familie mit dem Verkauf von Fossilien über Wasser hält und dabei spektakuläre Funde macht. Die beiden so unterschiedlichen Frauen widmen ihr Leben den rätselhaften Versteinerungen. Doch dann verlieben sich beide in denselben Mann.
