Abstract

From archaeological and textual perspectives, scholars Israel Finkelstein and Baruch Halpern respectively have argued for systemic changes in Judahite society brought about by the Assyrian invasions of the late eighth century BCE, changes involving the growth of the state and increase in the role of the individual. Will a scrutiny of Judahite interments reveal these abrupt societal changes or will they tell a different story, one of evolution rather than revolution?
