Jezreel Valley Regional Project Archaeology and History of a Regional Landscape

Previous Research


The Jezreel Valley has been well documented by informal and formal studies for hundreds of years contributing to a massive dataset of historical observations and detailed studies. This includes a range of documentation from travelers’ narratives to published archaeological reports to studies in the natural sciences. This portion of the project compiles the information from all past studies of the Jezreel Valley.

There is a fine line between 'research' in the modern sense and the antiquarian interest of early western travelers. We have attempted to draw a chronological line with the Edward Robinson's 1838 Researches in Palestine. Earlier accounts can be found under Early Western Travelers. Travel narratives do not cease with Robinson's research, so you will also find later accounts there. For this page, we restrict ourselves to research which was academic and remains so in modern study.
