Hat das biblische Israel einen nomadischen Ursprung? Kritische Beobachtungen aus der Perspektive der Archäologie und Kulturanthropologie Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract The paper reviews the concepts of nomadism in Near Eastern Archaeology and postulates that there is no archaeological evidence for Iron Age nomadism in Palestine and especially in the Negev. This gap of nomadic adaption stands in contrast to earlier forms of nomadism in Palestine especially during the 3rd millennium and again since the Persian Period.
