"Ashdod revisited"—maintained

Israel Finkelstein, Lily Singer-Avitz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In a recent issue of this journal, Ben-Shlomo (2003) disputed our main conclusions regarding the excavations at Ashdod (Finkelstein and Singer-Avitz 2001) and reaffirmed Dothan's stratigraphy and historical interpretation almost to the word. In this article we deal with his arguments period by period, to show that our observations should be maintained. We also deal with Ben-Shlomo's methodology regarding pottery assemblages, stratigraphy, regionalism and historical interpretation.
