Chalcolithic Settlements in the Western Samaria Foothills

Ram Gophna, Tsvika Tsuk

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper presents new data on the history of the Chalcolithic settlement system in western Samaria and offers a picture of the Chalcolithic occupation of the country's highlands. Pottery assemblages found in the area suggest that clay vessels were locally produced. Given the particular assemblage types it can now be assumed that they served sedentary agrarian populations.
