Abstract

Ethnicity has always been a central issue in Biblical Archaeology. Still, detecting ethnic groups in the archaeological record of ancient Israel in general, and identifying the Israelites in particular, have become less fashionable recently, with many scholars avoiding this altogether. The present article will analyze the reasons for this attitude, and, in light of anthropological approaches to ethnicity, will suggest a new method for the study of ethnic groups in the archaeological record of ancient Israel.
