Palestine Exploration Quarterly (PEQ) is the peer-reviewed journal of the Palestine Exploration Fund, which was established in 1865 as the first scholarly society dedicated to the scientific study of what was then generally known as the Holy Land. In 1869, the Fund through its Palestine Exploration Fund Quarterly Statement aimed to illuminate the Bible for its readers with scholarly information about the land of the Bible. PEQ is the Statement's successor and while it remains true to its original brief, it has greatly widened its scope. In spite of its historical title, PEQ is concerned not just with Palestine/the land of Israel, but with the wider region of the Levant - its history, archaeology (including biblical aspects), art, languages, natural and earth ethnology, geography and natural and earth sciences. Its contents include studies of pottery and other artefacts, examination and interpretation of archaeological sites, publications and studies of inscriptions and ancient texts, articles on the history of the Levant, and the publication of archives relating to the exploration of the Levant, together with reports on archaeological work supported by the Fund, and reviews of books. PEQ publishes the work of both established and rising scholars within the field.
