    The set of two books that Anati refers to are the tomes of all the data from the archaeological surveys of 30 years. He writes: “All the survey was published In two volumes (Har Karkom, 2009; and Beer Karkom, 2010) as part of the Archaeological Survey of Israel. Every recorded site can be found there according to the geographical coordinates.” I think in the end there were 13,000 archaeological sites in the 200 sq. km square around the mountain. Probably the majority is rock art, though there are also 1000s of dwelling and cultic installations. As he says, most people will not be able to access these books (in the IAA library) and won’t be able to get a sense of them either. It’s just the data, site by site. But there are easier ways to understand what’s there… read one of his summary books or articles, or his website http://www.harkarkom.com. As he says at the end of his UCSD talk, “If this is *not* Mount Sinai, what is it?!”
