Chapter Summary

Most research dealing with material from the Middle Bronze tombs in Megiddo ignored the tombs on the slope (Kenyon 1969; Tufnell 1973; Hallote 2001). This chapter explores the chronological, stratigraphic, and spatial aspects of these tombs in order to understand what occurred on the southeastern slope of Tel Megiddo during that period. The Chicago Expedition dated twenty-five tombs on the southeastern slope to the Middle Bronze Age (Guy and Engberg 1938: 140). Almost all of the Middle Bronze tombs that were excavated on the summit of the mound (in Area BB) were found below floors and courtyards of buildings. The urban land use of part of the slope during the Middle Bronze II-III as a neighborhood requires a short discussion of the actual size of Megiddo during this period.
