the pastoralist background of the settlers. Other factors, like a convert for security, might dictate the elliptical plan for any group of people. If that’s right then the elliptical plan does not tell anything about background. 8. Wouldn’t a difference in such conditions, then, adequately account for the great differences between the material culture of the iron I hill-country settlements and the material culture of the LB Canaanite urban centers in the lowlands of Palestine? Is so the differences in material culture don’t… 9. Excavation of some of the isolated LB sanctuaries yielded sophisticated ritual objects that we would not expect from the pastoralists. Would not such objects cast doubt on the pastoralists nature of the people who frequented the sanctuaries? Finkelstein can only explain the evidence away by guessing that either the pastoralists borrowed the cultic objects from nearby cities. But, if residents from nearby cities might have frequented the isolated sanctuaries, why must we resort to the idea of pastoralists at all? 10. Irvine is skeptical. Finkel is highly creative but inconclusive. All this is circumstantial evidence. Too little concrete and unambiguous evidence for it.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
