Chapter Summary

This chapter compares the settlement pattern in the two periods on the two sides of the Jordan. The area in the east, corresponding with the western Jordan Valley, was examined: from the southern Beth Shean Valley in the north, to the regions corresponding to Jericho in the south, and in the east to the slopes of the hills of Gilead and the Jordanian mountain ridge. The important excavations from the Early Bronze I (EB I) are Tell Um Hammad, Tell esh-Shuna north of the study region, Tell el-Handaquq, Tell el-Handaquq, Kataret es-Samra, Jebel Abu Thawwab, Tell es-Sa'idiyeh, and Tell Abu al-Kharaz. The distribution of the Chalcolithic sites in the region is characterized by their location along the interface between the wadis and the valley. The chapter identifies numerous common characteristics and points of difference between the regions and the different periods.
