In recent years it has been argued that climatic reasons, especially rapid climate change in the late third millennium BC (the so-called 4.2 ka BP event) might have triggered this supra-regional collapse in western Asia and Egypt, linking it to a period of aridification and cooling.
Particularly challenging is to determine whether or not some of the changes in the archaeological record of this period can be synchronized to any corresponding climatic changes.His current research includes a longue durée analysis of the Amorites in the ancient Near East addressing issues of the negotiation of identity and the contexts in which these processes occurred.Abstract: The Amorites have occupied a central place among discussions of identity and ethnicity in the late third and early second millennia BC.Elisabetta Boaretto and Johanna Regev (Weizmann Institute of Science)Title: High Resolution Early Bronze Age C14 Chronology from the Southern Levant: Micro-archaeological Approach for Context Characterization and Archaeological Interpretation Bio: Dr.
