Chapter Summary

The Biblical King David is an intriguing figure and has inspired artisans through the ages to create impressive works of art. In the Hebrew Bible, King David is already portrayed as an intriguing and paradoxical figure. It would be of great interest to discuss the landscape of Ancient Judah in full detail. For the purpose of this contribution it suffices to note that Ancient Israel /Palestine was a hilly area, that contained various and differing zones. Aharon Horowitz was one of the first historians to pay attention to the effect of changes in climate to the course of history. This chapter pays attention to inscriptions from the Iron Age that supposedly refers to David. It looks at inscriptions that, although they do not mention David, are of importance since they roughly stem from Iron Age IIA.
