      From Professor Ami Mazar comes news that four (4) new publications regarding the Tel
      Rehov excavations, radiocarbon dating and Iron Age chronology in the southern Levant are
      now to be found online (PDF format), having recently been published in the proceedings of
      the September 2004 Oxford conference on radiocarbon, Levantine archaeology and
      chronology:

      Levy, T.E. & Higham, T., The Bible and Radiocarbon Dating - Archaeology, Text and
      Science, Equinox, 2005.

      Links to the online articles may be found on the front page of the Rehov website:

      http://www.rehov.org/

      The fourth article - actually the introductory piece - appears in a separate front page
      section entitled "About the Iron Chronology Debate".

      The title of the articles are as follows:

      *Amihai Mazar, "The Debate over the Chronology of the Iron Age in the Southern Levant -
      Its History, the Current Situation and a Suggested Resolution"

      *Mazar, A., Bruins, H.J., Panitz-Cohen, N. and van der Plicht, J., "Ladder of Time at Tel
      Rehov: Stratigraphy, Archaeological Context, Pottery and Radiocarbon Dating"

      *Van der Plicht, J. and Bruins, H.J., "Quality Control of Groningen 14C Results from Tel
      Rehov: Repeatability and Intercomparison of Proportional Gas Counting and AMS"

      *Bruins, H.J., van der Plicht, J., Mazar, A. Bronk Ramsey, C. and Manning, S. W., "The
      Groningen Radiocarbon Series from Tel Rehov: OxCal Bayesian computations for the Iron
      IB-IIA Boundary and the Iron IIA Destruction Events"

      Although the last two items are admiitedly quite technical, each article makes highly
      interesting reading. Professor Mazar, the authors and the editors are to be thanked for
      making these papers, from what was a very stimulating conference indeed, widely
      available.

      Trust this is of interest,
