The footsteps of humankind, as they faltered along the erratic pathway of civilisation, have marked the earth in indelible fashion. Cities, villages and patterns of settlement, pottery and farming techniques have all left their imprint upon the environment. Historical geography and archaeology are two disciplines designed to interpret the marks of humankind. Consequently our endeavour is a restricted one. As a case study we have chosen the early history of Israel, utilising the archaeology of settlement patterns as an example of the interface between archaeology and historical geography. In the process, we shall seek to demonstrate the particular value of the so-called 'New Archaeology' as the point of interception between archaeology and historical geography.
