        Lot looked out on the valley where the Dead Sea is now and saw an incredibly fertile and well-watered region. And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of the Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before Hashem destroyed Sdom and Gomorrah, like the garden of Hashem.

      The principal goal of this annual is to reveal the inherent relationship between Assyriology, Semitics, and biblical studies—a relationship that our predecessors comprehended and fruitfully explored but that is often neglected today. From the history of the crossing of the Jordan by Joshua and the expedition of Chedorlaomer when Lot was captured, it is evident that the outlines of the sea were essentially the same 3, years ago as they are now, showing that there has been no radical change in climatic conditions since then. II. .

        Analysis of archaeological sites north of the Dead Sea demonstrate that a meteor explosion in the skies 3, years ago instantly obliterated a civilization and destroyed once fertile farmland in several settlements in the area of what is now Jordan. This discovery provides another explanation for the sudden desertion of what researchers believe to be the biblical city of Sodom. This chapter describes results of preliminary research by the ‘Follow the Pots’ project, centring on the sites of Bab adh-Dhra’, Naqa/Safi, and Fifa. These three extensive Early Bronze Age (EBA,– BCE) cemeteries on the southeastern Dead Sea Plain in Jordan offer a unique opportunity to study mortuary practices at a time when the social landscape changed dramatically as people.
