High or low: Megiddo and Tel Rehov

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

Abstract

This chapter challenges the notion that Tel Reh?ov can serve as the principal anchor for Iron Age chronology. It summarizes the main shortcomings in the analysis of the second series of 14C determinations from Tel Reh?ov and points to difficulties in the interpretation of the stratigraphy of the site. The chapter compares the stratigraphy of Megiddo and Tel Reh?ov and shows that, in fact, the Tel Reh?ov finds support the most important premise of the Low Chronology system—the dating of the ashlar palaces at Megiddo to the first half of the 9th century BCE.
