10355RE: [ANE-2] Unexamined sites
- Apr 1, 2009There are many significant sites all over the "Near East" i.e. Western
Asian, awaiting exploration/excavation/basic surveying. The northern
portions of the Levant should yield substantial information about
connections between Egypt and Anatolia in the 2nd & 1st mill BCE.

I was wondering if members of this group had particular sites or
localities they wish archaeologists would examine? I mean, sites that
are possibly avaiable for archeological digs. The Temple Mount, for
example, is not available at this time.
For example, I wish an interesting tell near the West Bank town of
Awarta would be examined. I believe it might be useful for greater
understanding of this region in the Iron 2 age. The site controlled some
interesting Iron Age routes south-west to the Sharon Plain, north-west
to the region south of Samaria, south-east to the Jordan and the
Ammon/Moab region, and north-south to Shechem and Jerusalem.
Just a bit of wishful fancy.
