The view from Mount Nebo / Andrew Sherratt."Over the past several years, a number of Levantine archaeologists working on the Iron Age (ca.
Dever -- David Did It, Others Did Not: The Creation of Ancient Israel / Baruch Halpern. 1200-586 BCE) have begun to employ high precision radiocarbon dating to solve a wide range of chronological, historical and social issues.
A great deal of debate has been generated by this new research direction in southern Levantine (Israel, Jordan, Palestinian territories, southern Lebanon & Syria, the Sinai) archaeology.
This book takes the pulse of how archaeology, science-based research methods and the Bible interface at the beginning of the 21st century and brings together a leading team of archaeologists, Egyptologists, Biblical scholars, radiocarbon dating specialists and other researchers who have embraced radiocarbon dating as a significant tool to test hypotheses concerning the historicity of aspects of the Old Testament or Hebrew Bible As this book "raises the bar" in how archaeologists tackle historical issues as manifest in the interplay between the archaeological record and text, its interest will go well beyond the 'Holy Land.' Book jacket."--Jacket.
Biblical archaeology - revolutionized by radiocarbon dating and statistical modelling - is leading the way in which archaeologists approach material culture.
