Abstract

Current work at Megiddo has resolved the two main problems that have haunted research in regard to Thutmose III’s campaign at the site. The work shows that it was the city of Stratum IX of LB I that confronted the pharaoh. And‚ contrary to conventional wisdom‚ it also demonstrates that in the Stratum IX era‚ Megiddo was better protected than it was in the Middle Bronze Age‚ as the old brick wall was still in use‚ and houses that created a continuous outer stone wall were constructed on top of it.
