Tel Mor: The Moshe Dothan Excavations, 1959-1960

Jerusalem: Israel Antiquities Authority, 2007


The Moshe Dothan excavations (1959-1960) at Tel Mor uncovered a series of large buildings that dominated the summit of this small tell throughout the Late Bronze Age. Two of the buildings excavated had sizable amounts of Egyptianized pottery and it is argued that these were Egyptian garrisons in Canaan. This excavation report presents the stratigraphy and building remains of the site, as well as the Late Bronze and Iron Age pottery and other finds.
