Synopsis: This volume is the first in a planned series of reports on the investigations of the Lahav Research Project (LRP) at Tell Halif, located near Kibbutz Lahav in southern Israel. The LRP has focused widely on stratigraphic, environmental, and ethnographic problems related to the history of settlement at Tell Halif and in its immediate surroundings, from prehistoric through modern times. In this volume, Dessel reports on the excavation undertaken at Site 101 during Phase II and is also supplemented by his later research. Readers will find the book important for the archaeology and history of the southern Levant in the 4th millennium b.c.e. as well as for connections between the Levant and surrounding regions in that era.
