Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the six scientific principles of the Manasseh hill country survey with a description of how each site is listed. A relatively large territory was chosen, the boundaries of which have a geomorphologic and/or historical basis. Each volume is divided into landscape units ranging in area from 10 to 70 sq km. This division is based on four factors: the great variety of the Manasseh Hill Country region; the existence of geographically "enclosed" landscape units, such as valleys; the fact that several small landscape units can easily be joined to form larger units for purposes of analysis; and the existence of a former historical basis. The survey was made on foot with no omissions. All sites and features were recorded. A distinction was drawn between sites and features. Sites are places where people dwelt in the past. Recording underwent a series of changes in comparison to customary recording.
