      I am wondering if anyone can point me to publications that deal with evidence/patterns of human settlement along rivers and streams during the Late Bronze Age and Iron Age in the area of ancient Israel.

       

      At present I have the following articles, but I am having a hard time locating anything else that deals with the subject directly.                                                                                                                                                                   

       

      1.  Avraham Faust, “The Israelites and the Sea: Ecology, World Views and Coastal Settlements,” UF 43 (2011) 117-130

      2.  Avraham Faust, “The Sharon and the Yarkon Basin in the Tenth Century BCE: Ecology, Settlement Patterns and Political Involvement,” IEJ 57 (2007) 65-82

       

      Thanks for any help.

        I don’t know that much has been written about this.  There are a number of Iron I sites surveyed by Zertal and others very close to the Jordan, some less than a kilometer away, Tirat Zvi being one that comes to mind.  If you look at the surveys of Zertal and of Finkelstein, several of the Iron I sites are in wadi valleys (Wadi Farah has several, as does Wadi Zimri behind Tell el-Ful, as well as others), but part of the year most of these wadis would have been dry.

          Check out the Tell Aphek volumes published by Tel Aviv U. M. Kokhavi et al.

          Also, check maps of the southern Levant. You will see sites of those periods at Nahariya, the Jordan Valley: Beth Shan, Tel Rehov, Tell Mazar, Tell es-Sayidiyeh, Tall Abu el-Kharaz, Tell Deir Allah, Sites on the Qishon including Tell Abu Hawam (mouth of Qishon). Tell Dan at one of the sources of the Jordan. Et-Tell/Beth Saida once quite near the Jordan River. Tell Kinrot on the Kinneret/Sea of Galilee. Tell Kitan on the Jordan.Gaza, on the Besor Stream/Wadi Gaza.

           Probably general essays/chapters on the periods you note will have lists of sites that can be matched with maps. Truth be told there are so very many. Rivers, streams were always attractive to settlement because water was scarce and there are so many months with no rainfall in the southern Levant. In short, the literature is replete with information. You just have to sift it out. First get a good map of the rivers and then start looking for sites. Try cross-checking with the New Encyclopedia of Excavations. It is reasonably up to date.
