The early Iron Age, between 1200 and 1000 B.C.E., witnessed a wave of settlements in the highlands of Israel, mostly in Samaria but also in the Upper Galilee and Judah. This wave is traditionally associated with the genesis of ancient Israel and is interpreted in light of the collapse of Canaanite urban centers at the end of the 12th century B.C.E. This lecture reconsiders the reasons behind this wave of settlement throughout the Samaria Highlands in light of new understanding of the social and economic reality on the coastal plain, the Jezreel, Jordan and the Hula valleys, and the regions immediately around the Samaria Highlands.
