      Dear all,

      I am glad to announce the publication of the following article in the
      Journal of Hebrew Scriptures (http://www.jhsonline.org)

      Journal of Hebrew Scriptures - Volume 11: Article 12 (2011)

      Israel Finkelstein, Ido Koch, and Oded Lipschits, "The Mound on the Mount: A
      Possible Solution to the 'Problem with Jerusalem'"

      Abstract:

      Following Knauf's suggestion (2000), the article raises the possibility that
      in most periods in the second and first millennia BCE the main built-up area
      of Jerusalem was limited to a mound on the Temple Mount. This mound, which
      may have covered an area of five hectares and more, was boxed-in under the
      Herodian platform. At these periods activity in the City of David ridge was
      restricted to the area near the Gihon spring. In the Iron IIB and late
      Hellenistic Periods the fortified settlement expanded simultaneously to both
      the City of David ridge and the southwestern hill. In these two periods
      there was no need to fortify the western side of the City of David, as this
      line ran in the middle of the city.
