The Early Bronze Age II is the Southern Levant's first urban period. Timnah (Tell Batash), a town on the southern coastal plane, is another notable Middle Bronze Age II site.

The Middle Bronze Age II was marked by emergence of southern states. There are, however, hints at the major changes to come in influences from the area to the north, Syria, which was to revolutionize ceramic traditions in the southern Levant for the next two millennia.

The Levantine corridor—land which connects the continent of Africa to the Levant—was also the main pathway for modern humans. Earlier genetic analyses modeled the genomes of Middle-to-Late Bronze Age people of the Southern Levant as having almost equal shares of earlier local populations (Levant_N) and populations that are related to the Chalcolithic Zagros (Feldman et al.,Haber et al.,Lazaridis et al., ), suggesting a movement from the northeast.

Genome-wide data from Bronze Age individuals across nine sites in the Southern Levant show strong genetic resemblance, including a component from populations related to Chalcolithic Zagros and Early Bronze Age Caucasus introduced by gene flow lasting at least until the late Bronze Age and affecting modern Levantine population architecture.

This articlefocuses on the archaeology of the Levant during the Middle Bronze Age. It explains that the original chronological divisions of the Middle Bronze Age in the Levant,which centred on historical synchronisms between the southern Levant and Egypt, were changed due to the different sets of relationships that the southern and northern regions of the Levant had with neighbouring.

On Iron Age Weapons. Bronze replaces copper beginning in Middle Bronze IIA.

This articleexamines the key developments in the Levant during the Early Bronze Age. It traces the south Levantine routes towards urbanism in the earlier part of the Early Bronze Age and describes similar developments in the northern Levant in the middle part of the period.

Archaeological analysis reveals disparity in terms of their ‘trajectory’ towards urban life in the eastern. This book is intended for undergraduate and graduate students studying the ancient southern Levant (Israel and Palestine) from the earliest prehistory to the historic past.

It integrates thematic concerns, such as gender, ethics, metallurgy, bioanthropology, archaeobotany, and presenting the past with chronological changes, from hunter Format: Hardcover.

Following what many archaeologists qualify as a period of “crises”, the beginning of the Middle Bronze Age (roughly around B.C.) witnessed the regeneration of complex urban societies all across the Levant (Akkermans and Schwartz, ).This new period is accompanied by the appearance of new types of weapons, such as fenestrated axes and socketed.
