Abstract

Finkelstein, Martin, Arie and Piasetzky recently discussed the history and archaeology of Megiddo during the Late Bronze Age, relying in the main on the archaeological data and radiometric dates acquired in the renewed excavations of Tel Aviv University. In their discussions, much emphasis is put on the Strata VIII–VIIA palaces dug at the time by the Chicago Oriental Institute, the final destruction of the Stratum VIIA palace and its date, and the first appearance of Philistine bichrome pottery in Megiddo. Many of their conclusions regarding these issues are challenged in the present rejoinder.
