The evidence considered here is summarized in Bryant G. Wood, “From Ramesses to Shiloh: Archaeological Discoveries Bearing on the Exodus–Judges Period,” in David M. Howard, Jr. and Michael A. Grisanti, eds., Giving the Sense: Understanding and Using Old Testament Historical Texts (Grand Rapids, MI: Kregel, 2003), pp. 256–282. To be consistent, a chronology for Biblical history that is based on the chronological data in the Hebrew Bible must be used, i.e., an Exodus in the mid-15th century B.C. See Bryant G. Wood, “The Rise and Fall of the 13th-Century Exodus-Conquest Theory,” Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, 48 (2005), pp. 475–489. For dates in the Judges period, see Paul J. Ray, Jr., “Another Look at the Period of the Judges,” in Glenn A. Carnagey, Sr., ed., Beyond the Jordan (Eugene, OR: Wipf & Stock, 2005), pp. 93–104.
