Overview

One of the earliest surviving manifestations of the cultural heritage of the Land of Israel in ancient times is the use of the cuneiform script from the Middle Bronze Age to the Iron Age. Cuneiform in Canaan: The Next Generation presents an updated version of the original Cuneiform in Canaan volume that was published by the Israel Exploration Society and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2006. The update volume presents all ninety-seven of the known texts, including new tablets and fragments from Hazor, Megiddo, and now, for the first time, Jerusalem. The volume provides critical editions, up-to-date bibliographies, and discussion of the sources, as well as a new, updated introduction highlighting the ongoing work of the Cuneiform in Canaan Research Project of the Hebrew University, under the directorship of Professor Wayne Horowitz of the Institute of Archaeology.
