Abstract and Keywords
This article examines the major developments in the southern Levant during the Intermediate Bronze Age. It explains that the definition and chronology of the Intermediate Bronze Age in the southern Levant is based on a distinctive material assemblage, and on semi-historical links to Egypt, Syria, and Mesopotamia. The article also highlights the fact that there was a stratigraphic break between Early Bronze III (EB III) and Intermediate Bronze, marked by the destruction and/or abandonment of most EB III walled settlements, a process of uncertain duration, which was followed by marked social changes.
