For Finkelstein’s rather abrupt about-face on Israelite ethnicity, compare Archaeology of the Israelite Settlement with “The Emergence of Israel in Canaan: Consensus, Mainstream and Dispute,” Scandinavian Journal of the Old Testament 5:2 (1991), pp. 47–59; “Ethnicity and Origin of the Iron I Settlers in the Highlands on Canaan: Can the Real Israel Stand Up?” Biblical Archaeologist (BA) 59:4 (1996), pp. 198–212. Yet nowhere does Finkelstein cite actual archaeological or textual data that forced this change of opinion.
