Abstract and Keywords

This articleexamines the history of Transjordan during the Late Bronze Age based on archaeological evidence. It comments on the theory advanced by American archaeologist Nelson Glueck that there was an occupational lacuna during most of the Middle and Late Bronze Ages in much of Transjordan. The analysis reveals that there is no proof that Transjordanwas ever under Egyptian rule. The number of ‘Egyptian’ finds in Transjordan is limited and would be further reduced if we scrutinised the production technique and inscriptions of scarabs from Transjordan.

Keywords: Transjordan, Bronze Age, Nelson Glueck, Egyptian rule, occupational lacuna, inscriptions, scarabs
