Chapter Summary

This chapter on 'Joshua 9:1-13:7 and Archaeology' collects the evidence regarding the cities and regions mentioned in this biblical passage and uses models that were designed to interpret these data in sketching the contribution of this evidence to the history of the Southern Levant. Archaeology and historical analysis of non-biblical texts are conducted as pursuits in their own right, while some socio-archaeological applications to the materials are compared in order to get an impression of the societal structures in the Southern Levant during the Late Bronze and Iron Age. It evaluates the present archaeological research by the result of historical geography of Joshua 9:1-13:7. The chapter defines the upper and lower historical limits for the archaeological 'monologue'. Finally, it completes the 'Monologue of Artefact' by offering an interpretation of these materials in the light of socio-archaeological models and extra-biblical texts.

Keywords: archaeology; biblical passage; Bronze age; historical geography; Iron age; Joshua 9:1-13:7; Southern Levant
