Description

This chapter outlines the data relating to settlement and urban development in the Early Bronze Age in the southern Levant, with attention to long term and broad scale patterns. This analysis includes an examination and discussion of the evidence for Egyptian activity in the southern Levant throughout the different phases of the Early Bronze Age, followed by an evaluation of the ways in which the changing relationship with an initially intrusive core region affected the nature and course of urban development in the Early Bronze Age southern Levant.
