Chapter Summary

The scores of papers discussing the transition between the Late Bronze and the Iron Ages that have been published in the elapsed time demonstrate how far we are from a broadly accepted scheme so optimistically envisioned by Albright and his colleagues. Egyptian involvement in Israel's central Coastal Plain probably began after Thutmose III's military campaign to Canaan. By the time of the 20th Dynasty in Egypt, the settlement pattern around the Yarkon-Ayalon basin had completely changed. The sociopolitical order within the area and the ethnic make-up of the population changed once again with the arrival of the Philistines. The theory of selforganization presumes that the "order parameter" grows from within the system and enslaves it, but Israel's Coastal Plain is a sub-system within a greater system.
