Excavations of the New Kingdom Fortress in Jaffa, 2011-2014: Traces of Resistance to Egyptian Rule in Canaan

Excavations of the Egyptian New Kingdom fortress in Jaffa (Tel Yafo, ancient Yapu), on the southern side of Tel Aviv, were renewed by the Jaffa Cultural Heritage Project from 2011 to 2014. This work is an outgrowth of the project's reappraisal of Jacob Kaplan's excavations in the Ramesses Gate area from 1955 to 1962. As the Egyptian fortress in Jaffa is the only one excavated in Canaan, its archaeological record provides a unique perspective on resistance to Egyptian rule from ca. 1460 to 1125 B.C.E., but especially during the second half of the 12th century B.C.E., when Jaffa was twice...

The Life and Times of an Ivory Handle of the Second Millennium BCE: A Tale of Prestige and Demise

This is an object biography of an ivory handle (from a mirror?) found amongst recycling metallurgy installations in an Iron Age IA context (ca. 1150-1100 BC) at Tel Dan. I trace the object from its ivory origins, through its exchange process, its manufacture as a finished composite object with a hafted bronze object, its probable deposit in a tomb, its scavenging from the tomb, and its removal from its metal component to facilitate the recycling of the metal. This handle is emblematic of the social, economic and political processes that affected Canaan in the second half of the second...

Canaanite jars and the maritime trade network in the northern Levant during the transition from the Late Bronze to the Early Iron Age, in: "Maritime Transport Containers in the Bronze–Iron Age Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean", edited by Stella Demesticha & A. Bernard Knapp, Uppsala 2016

The so-called Canaanite jar is widely viewed as the first known example of an amphora with morphological features suggesting its use in maritime trade. The term 'Canaanite jar', however, represents quite a broad category, and is thus at risk of being overused. It is more useful to distinguish between different morphological types of amphora pertaining to the extended family of 'Canaanite' storage and transport jars. For example, the Late Bronze Age (LBA) angular-shouldered type was widely adopted along the entire length of the Levantine coast and even as far away as Mycenaean Greece. Yet...

One of the minor gods: A case study on Khentytjenenet, an Old Kingdom deity of Saqqara and Abusir

Hitherto sparse evidence on Khentytjenenet has been markedly enlarged owing to new excavations of the Czech archaeological mission at Abusir. A recently discovered cluster of individuals holding priestly titles and/or epithets referring to Khentytjenenet has given us an impetus to scrutinise this deity. Records of Khentytjenenet are closely connected with a specific geographical part of the Memphite necropolis – Abusir and North Saqqara. The appearance of this deity was obviously associated with social, religious and administrative changes during the reign of Nyuserra. The title...

2016. Khirbet Qeiyafa: Late Iron Age I in Spite of It All — Once Again. IEJ 66: 232–244.

The debate regarding the periodical attribution of the Khirbet Qeiyafa pottery assemblage to the Iron Age I or IIA is still ongoing. In a recent issue of this journal, Kang (2015) responded to an earlier article published by me (Singer-Avitz 2012) and attributed this assemblage to a transitional Iron I–IIA period. Despite this conclusion, he suggested that the site's original dating to the Iron IIA should be maintained. In the current paper, I shall briefly address some of Kang's statements and discuss the notion of 'transitional period'
