Abstract

The four-room house was the typical dwelling in the southern Levant during the Iron Age. Its widespread use both in time and space raises many questions about its origins, its function, and mostly intriguingly, about who lived in it. Did the four-room house form the quintessential Israelite home? The authors believe the answer to this question is yes!
