It has been generally accepted that the Upper Galilee was a densely populated region through the Bronze Age. Aharoni (1957) suggested that concept following his pioneering work in that area during the 1950s. The author's survey in the Lower Galilee, as well as partial surveys in the Upper Galilee and southern Lebanon, revealed that those regions were poorly settled in the Late Bronze Age. In the light of that archaeological evidence, this article reexamines some Egyptian historical sources, and argues that both archaeologically and historically the Galilee was not a major occupied region as Aharoni suggested. The regional vacancy illustrates the situation in the Galilee on the eve of the "Israelite settlement."
