Chapter Summary

This chapter, which is part of a larger study of Iron Age Israelite society, concentrates on studying the household economy at the macrolevel. This will be accomplished through an examination of data from dozens of structures located in many settlements. The chapter focuses on the production or consumption of a particular household. It discusses the evidence from urban and rural settlements in the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah during the Iron Age II, and will draw some general conclusions regarding society in those settlement sectors and the place of the households within those economies. This will be followed by a broader discussion of the roles of the various types of households within the larger Iron Age economic spheres of the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah. The chapter examines the relations between the royal economy and the traditional, lineage economy; it reconstructs the way in which all three systems operated together.

Keywords: household economies; Iron Age Israelite society; Israel; Judah
