We could go further, in my estimation, by devising a field project that would locate and excavate several small twelfth-century BCE sites simultaneously, with a single research design and strategy. These would be: (1) a coastal site, presumably founded by ‘Sea People’ or ‘Philis tines’; (2) an inland site in the continuing Late Bronze Age tradition; and (3) a hill-country site typical of those we have been considering as ‘proto-Israelite’. We actually have dug several such sites, but without the deliberate, systematic emphasis on recognising ethnic identity that would make direct and fruitful comparisons possible.
