Description :
Regional data on settlement and vegetation with detailed evidence of rural agriculture from two Bronze Age villages in the Jordan Valley are integrated. This approach is explicitely rural. Long-standing interest in the advent of agriculture reveals that intensive localized depletion of woodland resources followed the aggregation of communities. Rank-size analysis illustrates the largely rural nature of Bronze Age settlement in the southern Levant. The mixed cultural and natural landscapes that have supported long-term agriculture in the Levant reflect a legacy of discontinuous changes in rural ecology in response to the waxing and waning of urbanized society.
