So as to keep out of trouble (in between Ukraine, global warming, Monkeypox and Covid), I’m happy to announce the publication of two new papers.
This first paper is a short summary of the archaeology and cultural history of Israel/Palestine, from the Neolithic through Hellenistic Period, which just appeared in the Encyclopedia of Material Culture in the Biblical World: A New Biblisches Reallexikon. I believe this article will be particularly useful as an introduction to the topic, for students and lay persons.
The full title of the article is:
Maeir, A. M. 2022. Archaeology and Cultural History. Pp. XXIX-LIII in Encyclopedia of Material Culture in the Biblical World: A New Biblisches Reallexikon, eds. A. Berlejung, P. M. M. Daviau, J. Kamlah and G. Lehmann. Tubingen: Mohr Siebeck.
The second paper is a popular summary, in Spanish, which deals primarily with the history and archaeology of the Kingdom of Judah, during the Iron Age of the Levant.
This paper is entitled:
Maeir, A. M. 2022. Judá y el final de los reinos israelitas. Desperta Ferro. Arqueologia e Historia 43: 34–41.
I’d be more than happy to send them to whoever is interested!
