The Megiddo Gates: Outdated Views Versus New Data

Israel Finkelstein, Matthew J. Adams

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In a recent article in this journal we presented the results of our 2018 excavations in the area of the six-chambered gate at Megiddo (Finkelstein et al. 2019). Ussishkin (2020) challenged our interpretation, reiterating his past theories regarding the Megiddo gates. Here we present data which negate his views.
