How did the constantly changing relations between Aram and Israel affect their history, their identity and the collective historical memory reflected in the Bible and other sources? The authors of this volume address the interactions between the Aramaean kingdoms and the Israelite Northern Kingdom during the Early Iron Age (12th-8th century BCE) focusing on archaeology and material culture vis-à-vis textual sources and historical memory.
