Tel Beth-Shean 1989–1996. Volume IV: The 4th and 3rd Millennia B.C.E
This volume presents the results of the excavations at Tel Beth-Shean from the Early Bronze Age and the Intermediate Bronze Age. A substantial Early Bronze IB building in Area M was violently destroyed and rebuilt shortly afterwards. Its plan and rich finds have implications for our understanding of social and economic aspects of this formative period. After a gap in Early Bronze II, the Early Bronze III is represented by a series of occupation phases, most of them accompanied by a large amount of Khirbet Kerak Ware, confirming that Beth-Shean was the southernmost settlement site of the ‘Khirbet Kerak people’. After a possible occupation gap, an ephemeral intermediate Bronze Age settlement existed for a short time on top of the abandoned Early Bronze Age city.
