Sea Peoples of the Northern Levant?

Ramat Rahel III

Sea Peoples of the Northern Levant? by Brian Janeway

List Price: $49.50
Your Price: $44.55

Just arrived, January 3

Did an invasion of the Sea Peoples cause the collapse of the Late Bronze Age palace-based economies of the Levant, as well as of the Hittite Empire? Renewed excavations at Tell Tayinat in southeast Turkey are shedding new light on the critical transitional phase of the Late Bronze/Early Iron Age (ca. 1200–1000 B.C.), a period that in the Northern Levant has until recently been considered a “Dark Age,” due in large part to the few extant textual sources relating to its history. However, recently discover . . . (more)

Ramat Rahel III by Oded Lipschits, Yuval Gadot, and Liora Freud

List Price: $169.50
Your Price: $152.55

This book brings to complete and final publication two past excavations conducted at the site of Ramat Rahel. A major part of the report is devoted to publishing the results of Yohanan Aharoni’s long-term excavation project at the site during the years 1954, 1956, 1959–1962. The renewal of excavations at the site in 2004 triggered the need to reevaluate the site’s architecture and stratigraphy, and from that the idea to publish this report was born.

Tel Beth-Shemesh: A Border Community in Judah by Shlomo Bunimovitz and Zvi Lederman

List Price: $189.50
Your Price: $170.55

Excavations at Beth-Shemesh are actually a story within a story. On the one hand, they are the story of the archaeology of the Land of Israel in a nutshell: from the pioneering days of the Palestine Exploration Fund, through the “Golden Age” of American biblical archaeology, to current Israeli and international archaeology. On the other hand, they are the fascinating story of a border site that was constantly changing its face due to its geopolitical location in the Sorek Valley in the Shephelah––a juncture of Canaanite, Philistine, and . . . (more)

Beer-Sheba III

by Ze'ev Herzog and Lily Singer-Avitz

List Price: $289.50
Your Price: $260.55

The publication of the full report of the Tel Beer-sheba Iron Age remains is a fulfillment of a scientific dream. The excavations at Tel Beer-sheba, carried out under the auspices of the Institute of Archaeology of Tel Aviv University, were the highlight of Yohanan Aharoni’s vast research program in the Beer-sheba Valley. He directed this program from 1969 until his untimely death in 1976 at the age of 56. The final season of excavations at Tel Beer-sheba, the eighth, took place in the summer of 1976 and was carried out after Aharoni’s  . . . (more)

Sepphoris II

by Eric C. Lapp

List Price: $79.50
Your Price: $63.60

Sepphoris was an important Galilean site from Hellenistic to early Islamic times. This multicultural city is described by Flavius Josephus as the “ornament of all Galilee,” and Rabbi Judah the Prince (ha-Nasi) codified the Mishnah there around 200 CE. The Duke University excavations of the 1980s and 1990s uncovered a large corpus of clay oil lamps in the domestic area of the western summit, and this volume presents these vessels. Richly illustrated with photos and drawings, it describes the various shape-types and includes a detailed ca . . . (more)
