Once in awhile, I also publish things not related to Tell es-Safi/Gath…
I just received from Ami Mazar a pre-print copy of a chapter that I wrote for the forthcoming, 5 volume final report of Ami’s excavations at Tel Rehov. The chapter is an introduction to the geography and environmental background of the Beth Shean Valley, as a backdrop for the excavations at Tel Rehov.
The chapter is based on research conducted as part of my PhD (1997; co-supervised by Ami), which was later (2010) published in book form (see here).
The chapter is entitled:
Maeir, A. M. 2016. Chapter 1: The Beth-Shean Valley: Geographical and Environmental Background. Pp. 1–11 in Excavations at Tel Rehov, 1997–2012. Vol. 1, eds. A. Mazar and N. Panitz-Cohen. Qedem Monographs of the Institute of Archaeology. Jerusalem: Institute of Archaeology.
