Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
This volume presents the architecture, biological remains, and other material culture from the Hellenistic, Roman, and later strata excavated at Tel Zahara, a small site approximately 0.25 ha, located in the central Jordan Valley in modern Israel. In both the Hellenistic and Roman periods of settlement, Tel Zahara's close proximity to Beth Shean (Scythopolis) influenced the site's development and illustrates the interconnection between rural settlement and urban site. The data produced by the Tel Zahara excavations reveal rural practices and subsistence patterns, and underscore the strength and significance of the rural sector for development in Hellenistic and Roman Palestine.
