Demographic Trends in the Negev Highlands: Preliminary Results from the Emergency Survey

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Recent intensive archaeological reconnaissance in the Negev has provided a new, sound data base for the analysis of human adaptation in desert zones. The apparently cyclic nature of the rise and fall of Negev cultures is the result of basic tensions in man-land relationships in a marginal ecological setting. Other factors, including technological innovation, external cultural influences, and internal social development, are also examined for their effects on Negev adaptations.
