This book presents the first large-scale pottery assemblage ever excavated from the early tenth century BCE in Judah. Up to now the tenth century BCE has not been recognized in surveys conducted in Judah, simply because its pottery was not known. This creates the false impression that Judah was an empty area lacking population and a central authority. Our excavations at Khirbet Qeiyafa altered this situation. Clarifying the character of the pottery of this disputed era opens new horizons for understanding the early history of the Kingdom of Judah. For that reason it was important for us to present and discuss the assemblage in a detailed manner, with extensive drawings and photographs.
