Following the last entry about “in press articles” – and AMG’s note about another one about to appear – this morning I received the offprint of an article that has just appeared:
Chadwick, J. R., and Maeir, A. M. 2012. How Households Can Illuminate the Historical Record: The Judahite Houses at Gath of the Philistines (A Case Study in Household Archaeology at Tell es-Safi/Gath, Israel). Pp. 601–18 in Household Archaeology: New Perspectives from the Near East and Beyond, eds. B. Parker and C. Foster. Winona Lake, IN: Eisenbrauns.
In this article we discuss the remains of the Iron IIB (late 8th cent. BCE), Judahite houses which were discovered in Area F at Tell es-Safi/Gath, and how an analysis of the houses and their contents sheds light on daily life and aspects relating to the historical record of Philistia and the Shephelah during this period.
