This volume, edited by Jens Kamlah and Achim Lichtenberger is a collection of a variety of original papers dealing with historical, cultural and mythological aspects of the Southern Levant in a Mediterranean context. The articles range from the Bronze Age to Medieval Times and aim at placing the Southern Levant within the thriving field of Mediterranean Studies. Several of the papers conceptualize the Southern Levant as a micro region connected with the broader Mediterranean. Other texts deal with specific questions of research history and critically evaluate established models of the relationship of the Southern Levant to the Mediterranean Sea. In addition, archaeologists discuss several important coastal sites by focusing on the Mediterranean face of the Southern Levant and the interconnectedness of land and sea by theses maritime hubs. This collection of papers by leading experts in the field offers a fresh look at the Southern Levant and its place within the wider Mediterranean.
