Archaeology and history at Tel Michal

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Traditional biblical archaeology focuses on the construction of a 'ladder of progress' of archaeological artifacts and the correlation of unearthed antiquities with the written records. This paradigm, that has dominated the archaeology of Israel for decades, led to the preference for digging large 'key sites', well documented in historical sources, like Megiddo, Jericho, Hazor, Lachish, and many others.
