    But the most drastic difference is the one between Israel and Judah. Pig remains are nearlyabsent from Iron Age IIB sites located in the territory of the Kingdom of Judah (Table 1).Lachish (
    Tell ed-Duwe¯r
    ) and
    Te˙ ¯l H ˙ a¯lı¯f
    /
    Tell el-H ˘ uwe¯lfe
    in the Shephelah and
    Tell es-Seba
    inthe Beer-Sheba Valley, show a low frequency of pigs. The same holds true for
    Mo¯s˙ a¯
    in thehighlands west of Jerusalem and for an Iron Age IIB assemblage from the recent ‘WailingWall excavations’ in Jerusalem. The site of Aroer (
    H ˘ irbet Ara¯ ir
    ), located southeast of
    Tell es-Seba
    (the semi-arid area; current annual precipitation is 200mm) is the only one to standout, with more than 3% pigs. Aroer, as a way-station on the ancient road which connectedsouth Arabia with the Mediterranean littoral, had a unique identity and hence the faunalassemblage of this site may represent food habits of many different people who traveled alongthe road

    . This assumption is further supported by the fact that most of the cooking-potsfound at the site were not manufactured locally

    .As mentioned above, we checked whether the pigs were an actual part of a given site’seconomy and were raised (as domestic pigs) as part of its livestock (to be distinguished fromoccasional hunting). In all Iron Age IIB sites, the status of pigs was defined as domesticated(by the report’s author or by us using the measurements provided by the author; see Table 1for status definition and Table 2 for measurements used for definition) https://www.academia.edu/4062281/Pig...rael_and_Judah

    Thanks! :)
    We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore on Christ's behalf: 'Be reconciled to God!!'
