Many towns flourished in the Southern Levant during the 9th to 7th centuries BCE. More than a century of excavations of these towns in Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian Territories has resulted in an increased understanding of how such towns functioned and what they looked like. The remains of Megiddo, Samaria or Hazor, for instance, have received numerous visitors. This book aims at summarizing what is now actually known about the architecture of the towns. With this book, the author conducts a virtual city walk through such a town from the later Iron Age in this region.
