The arid areas of the Negev and Edom played a prominent role in the socio-economic and cultural development of the Iron Age civilizations of the southern Levant and northwestern Arabia, being at the interface of key trade routes, providing essential resources and developing cultic practices that spread to neighbouring regions. This volume comprises the papers presented at the symposium "Unearthing the Wilderness: Workshop on the History and Archaeology of the Negev and Edom in the Iron Age", held at the W.F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research, Jerusalem, on 12 December 2010, and supplemented with studies from other leading scholars. Research questions include the socio-economic and political fluctuations in the arid margins of the southern Levant, southern Judah, and the northern Hejaz in the Iron Age, the exploitation of the copper mines of Timna under New Kingdom Egyptian and local control, the relationships between the southern Levant and the Arabian world as seen from the archaeological and epigraphic record, and the question of the "Edomite" pottery assemblage in late Iron Age Judah.
Articles by J. M. Tebes, John S. Holladay Jr & Stanley Klassen, Tali Erickson-Gini, Sana Shilstein, Sariel Shalev & Yuval Yekutieli, Uzi Avner, Peter G. van der Veen & François Bron, Yifat Thareani, Lily Singer-Avitz, and Liora Freud.

About the Author:

Juan Manuel Tebes is a Near Eastern historian with areas of specialization in the history and archaeology of the Iron Age southern Levant and northwestern Arabia.

Review:

"As it stands, the volume contains very useful but highly specific and specialized data aimed at those conducting research in these regions. Even so, these essays also offer valuable historical insights and demonstrate how careful study of the minutiae can often expose broad vistas that bring to light the inhabitants and their utilization of these areas some three millennia ago." (Jeffrey P. Hudon - Bulletin of the American Schools of Oriental Research)                                                                                                                                                            "En conclusion, cet ouvrage propose un très bon aperçu des recherches actuelles sur le Néguev à l'âge du Fer...on saluera la qualité de la plupart des contributions, mais aussi celle de l'édition et de l'illustration, qui rendent ce volume agréable à lire et facilitent considérablement la compréhension des démonstrations archéologiques." (Jérôme Rohmer - Syria)                                                                                                                                                                                                                             "This volume should belong in all university libraries where ancient studies are taught and in the private library of anyone interested in ancient mining, the natural resources and economy of arid zones of the southern Levant and Arabia, and the effect of enclave economies on tribal societies from a world-systems perspective...This volume provides new information and new interpretations that are vital for scholarly debate and the advancement of knowledge." (Diana Edelman - Palestine Exploration Quarterly)                                                                                                   "En suma, este volumen constituye una importante contribución al corpus bibliográfico sobre la historia, la arqueología y la epigrafía del Néguev y Edom durante la Edad del Hierro." (Emanuel Pfoh - Antiguo Oriente)

"This book intends to become a standard reference for the archaeology of the arid margins of the Levant in the Late Bronze and Iron Ages." (Past Horizons - pasthorizonspr.com)
