Table of Contents


One of the earliest surviving manifestations of the cultural heritage of the Land of Israel in ancient times is the use of the cuneiform script, from the Middle Bronze Age to the Iron Age. The Cuneiform in Canaan volume presents for the first time the full corpus of all 91 cuneiform tablets and inscribed objects that have been recovered from the Land of Israel, including cuneiform tablets from the Bronze Age cities of Canaan, texts from the cities of the Philistines, and inscriptions from the Kingdoms of Judah and Israel. The volume, which provides critical editions, up-to-date bibliographies and discussion for each source, is the culmination of the work of the Cuneiform in Canaan Research Project of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, under the directorship of Dr. Wayne Horowitz of the Department of Ancient Near Eastern Studies.
