When the Hittites were raiding from the north, and the Philistines from the southwest, with the Moabites and Midianites on the east and south, the nation of ancient Israel, at the time of legendary King David circa 1000 B.C., clamored that a national king be declared, to rally the hebrew tribes under one banner, selecting the champion over the philistine Goliath, the shepherd warrior King David, the first king of Israel, who organized the nation of Israel as a cohesive unit of cities and villages, united by their common bond as the twelve tribes of Jacob, which had come out of Egypt with the great chosen one Moses just over 400 years previously, when the ice age was ending.
The Jews who came out of Egypt through the wilderness and then into Canaan Land crossed the Jordan River from the east at the north end of the Dead Sea, migrating and fighting the Canaanites at Jericho and Ai as they took control of the mountains of Israel, which run north to south from the today’s Golan Heights bordering Syria down along the west side of the Jordan River and then the Dead Sea to the Negev Desert, with the canaanite cities Urusalim, Hazor (north), Megiddo (west), and Gezer (south) having been rebuilt as fortress cities by kings David and Solomon when they solidified centralized control.
They commissioned huge building projects in conjuction with the phoenician Canaanites who controlled the northern ocean ports of Akko and Atlit, with the Philistines having controlled the south coast along the Mediterranean until the Assyrians permanently ended their nationhood two hundred years after Solomon’s reign, during the time of the hebrew prophet Isaiah, when Assyria injured Israel, and ended the Philistines, their name only to be resurrected spitefully by Alexander the Great, four hundred years later, having named Israel Palestine, long after the disappearance of the Philistines from the pages of ancient history, but known to Alexander from the pages of the Old Testament.
Farming was carried out by the Canaanites, before the arrival of the Hebrews, without irrigation or terracing of the hillsides of Judea, with plenty of water for crops by the rainfall back then, but by the time of David and Solomon, ‘though irrigation was never necessitated, extensive terracing projects on the hillsides were commissioned, to retain more scarce rainfall runoff for crops, the national farming strategy for the new nation state of Israel, by which time the canaanite fortresses in the Negev had been abandoned to desert, with only Abram’s old fort at Beer Sheva retained by Israel in that desert, only a few centuries before which had been lush with pastures and forests, actually during the Ice Age, that ended circa 1500 B.C., when the sea level rose to consume the first port cities at Akko and Atlit, the ruins now photographed at those sites.
Google Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings by Hapgood to see that the ancients were measuring and navigating the earth during the Ice Age, confirmed by these navigators’ ports now submerged on the shallow seafloor, with the cubit used by the Hebrews and the Egyptians having been an earth commensurate measure tied into those ancient navigational maps, because the cubit, like the ancient olympic foot, is a subdivision of the radius length of the earth, really simply explained in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com, that cubit length used to survey the dimensions for Solomon’s Temple at Jerusalem, which really was the rebuilt canaanite City of Jebu, also known as Urusalim. It was a much smaller world during the Ice Age than we have been led to believe as you can see, as you read on under the various categories here, and be sure to show that ancient mapping finding to your professors.
