Abstract

In view of recent attempts to vaporize the Canaanites and to erase the land of Canaan from the map-principally in N. P. Lemche's 1991 volume, "The Canaanites and their Land: The Tradition of the Canaanites"-a review of the crucial evidence is in order. The present study will concentrate on documents from the Late Bronze Age in particular, with some allusions to evidence from other periods, to provide an understanding of the texts within the semantic framework in which they were composed-the simple, straightforward meaning of the passages as intended by the ancient scribes.
