Chapter Summary

East Manasseh has been one of the lesser-known and lesser-researched areas of the central hill country in particular and of the Holy Land in general. The area lies outside of the usual realms of interest of explorers; it contains almost no famous historical sites; although it is frequently mentioned in the Bible, its conditions for exploration are difficult. This area, encompassing almost 540 sq km, has clear, natural borders in the south and east; in the north and west the authors relied on the borders of the relief lines (geomorphologic lines) which require an explanation. East Manasseh was divided into 10 landscape units. This division is based on the geomorphology and the history of the area. This chapter also presents several ceramic "families", both those particular to the region and those that present a chronological or other problem.

Keywords: central hill country; ceramic families; East Manasseh; historical sites; holy land; landscape units; relief lines
