  • All pottery has a range of appearance ("battleship curves) - both chronologically and regionally. But, one has to take this into account carefully, if you are dating something accordingly. If you have two types of vessels, one early and one later, and the later type appears at other sites in later relative contexts - the chances are that the dating is later - unless one can clearly...

  • I'm definitely not a "high chronologist" - at most a "revised conventional" and my 9th is not 8th? Would anyone seriously date the "Hazael" destruction at Gath to the 8th?

  • I had the honor, and pleasure, of studying first year Akkadian at HU under the late Avigdor (Victor) Hurowitz z"l. Many "Shumma Awilum"s we studied, accompanied by Avigdor's funny comments and interesting observations. He even once reprimanded me for eating the library... I will always remember Avigdor with his kippa (skullcap) with cuneiform written on it (I don't remember what it...
