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.

From among the earliest iron artifacts of ancient Israel!

According to the Bible, increasing pressure from the Philistines and other neighboring tribes, forced the Israelites to unite under the king Saul, c. 1050 B.C. David, originally a shepherd from Hebron, seized Jerusalem from the earlier Jebusite rulers, possibly a tribe of Canaanites, and took the throne in 1000 B.C. Solomon, son of David, supposedly took the throne in 965 B.C. This united kingdom lasted until c. 920 B.C. when it split into the Kingdom of Israel in the north, and the Kingdom of Judah in the South.

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

Susa was an ancient city of the Elamite, Persian and Parthian empires of Iran, located about 250 km (150 miles) east of the Tigris River. The Iranian town of Shush is located at the site of ancient Susa. Susa is one of the oldest-known settlements of the region and indeed the world, possibly founded about 4200 B.C.; although the first traces of an inhabited village have been dated to c. 7000 B.C.

Susa is mentioned in the Ketuvim of the Hebrew Bible. Both Daniel and Nehemiah lived in Susa during the Babylonian captivity of Judah of the 6th century B.C. Esther became queen there and saved the Jews from genocide. A tomb presumed to be that of Daniel is located in the area, known as Shush-Daniel. The tomb is marked by an unusual white, stone cone, which is neither regular nor symmetric. Many scholars believe it was at one point a Star of David. Susa is further mentioned in the Book of Jubilees (8:21 & 9:2) as one of the places within the inheritance of Shem and his eldest son Elam; and in 8:1, "Susan" is also named as the son (or daughter, in some translations) of Elam.
