In this article, we present new evidence pertaining to the transition from the Late Bronze to the Iron I at Megiddo and analyse data from past excavations. Meticulous excavations of strati-graphic sequences in different parts of the site, accompanied by good control over ceramic typology and a rigorous programme of radiocarbon dating, enable observing minute developments in the history of the site. We shed light on the history of Megiddo in the later phases of the Late Bronze Age and early days of the Iron I, the end of the Egyptian rule and the appearance of Philistine pottery. All three issues have implications beyond Megiddo.
