JERICHO’S SPRING & THE ORIGINS OF HISTORY
The Neolithic Revolution in the Jordan River Valley
This journey explores the connection between the landscape of the valley and the origins of urban civilization in Jericho some 10,000 years ago. What was it that encouraged the valley’s early inhabitants to abandon nomadic life and to settle in the single place? When did foraging, hunting tribes become agriculturalists? And how did farming lead to the development of an urban culture?
We begin this investigation at the spring at Auja with an introduction to the pre-historic landscape of the valley. We then move on to the archaeological site of Tel es Sultan, to see the wall and tower of Neolithic Jericho, and to learn what makes this one of the most important archaeological discoveries anywhere in the world.
