Full description for Israel's Ethnogenesis
This study of ethnicity in the emergence of Israel in Canaan, is wholeheartedly archaeological in scope, using the Bible only as a secondary source of information. After a summary of the somewhat meagre existing research on Israelite ethnicity, Faust draws on the extensive archaeological record to identify features which can be confirmed as representative of Israelite identity, such as pork avoidance, house plans, and using literary sources, circumcision, working backwards from the Iron Age II to ascertain the dating of their appearance. He also assesses the impact of interactions with the Philistines in the formation of an Israelite ethnicity.
