Abstract and Keywords
This articledescribes some of the major developments in the Levant during the Iron Age II. It evaluates the impact of the Assyrians on the material culture of the regions they dominated and considers the organisation of the economy of the various states in the Levant. The Assyrians were the first to dominate the Levantine scene in the Iron Age. The Levant’s contact with the Assyrians occurred during the Assyrian expansion in the ninth century and during the period of Assyria’s world domination.
