From the collection of Alex G. Malloy, former dealer in antiquities for 40 years.

In Canaan, in the Intermediate and Early and Middle Bronze Age, c. 2200 - 1570 B.C., most people lived in meager settlements of sheds and round huts. Cemeteries and funerary offerings are the principle remnants of the culture. The tombs and mortuary methods reveals that those interred with copper daggers, the warrior's weapon of the period, were awarded preferential treatment in death.

“And you shall command the people of Israel that they bring to you pure beaten olive-oil for the light, that a lamp may be set to burn continually.” Exodus 27:20.

Adler writes, "The decorations testify that these lamps were manufactured and used by Jews." An olive spray, the source of the lamp fuel, ornaments the top of this lamp.

Adler also notes the site of the workshop or workshops for this group is uncertain but "it seems certain they were made in one location because of their common features."

Ancient Israel, Southern Culture, Pottery Cup, Chalcolithic Period, 4th Millennium B.C.

Click for a larger photo
The Proto-Canaanite Ghassulian people lived in small hamlet settlements of mixed farming peoples, and migrated southwards from Syria into Israel. Houses were trapezoid-shaped and built mud-brick, covered with remarkable polychrome wall paintings. Their pottery was highly elaborate, including footed bowls and horn-shaped drinking goblets, indicating the cultivation of wine. Several samples display the use of sculptural decoration or of a reserved slip (a clay and water coating partially wiped away while still wet). The Ghassulians were a Chalcolithic culture as they also smelted copper. Ghassulian culture has been identified at numerous other places in what is today southern Israel, especially in the region of Beersheba.
