The altar on Mt. Ebal and related sites

BIBLE HISTORY DAILY: A Biblical Altar on Mt. Ebal and Other Israelite Footprints in the Jordan Valley? Potential archaeological evidence of the Israelites entering the Promised Land (Megan Sauter). As usual, the BAR article of which this is a summary is behind the subscription wall. But as usual, the summary is worth reading. The 2016 BAR article is: Ralph K. Hawkins, “Israelite Footprints: Has Adam Zertal Found the Biblical Altar on Mt. Ebal and the Footprints of the Israelites Settling the Promised Land?”

For more on the late Adam Zertal and his work, see here.
