Was the Egyptianized Pottery Cache from Megiddo a Foundation Deposit of Megaron Temple 4040? Response to Matthew J. Adams

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In a recent paper, Matthew J. Adams argued that the Egyptianized pottery cache discovered in the renewed excavations at Megiddo is a foundation deposit in Egyptian character of Megaron Temple 4040. This conclusion is partly based on his analysis of the stratigraphy of Area J (University of Chicago’s Area BB). The present response argues (1) that the stratigraphic conclusions made at the time by the excavators rather than those of Adams are correct, and (2) that the cache is not a foundation deposit.
