Actually Heshbon/Tell Hesban represents somewhat of a pattern for the “conquest cities.” Also in the cases of Jericho/Tell es-Sultan, Arad/Tell Arad, Ai/et-Tell and Yarmuth/Tell el-Yarmuk—excavations at what appear to be the most likely candidate sites for cities supposedly conquered by Joshua produced little or no Late Bronze Age remains. For a detailed discussion of this matter, see J. Maxwell Miller, “Archaeology and the Israelite Conquest of Canaan: Some Methodological Observations,” Palestine Exploration Quarterly 109 (1977), pp. 87–93; and “Israelite Occupation of Canaan,” in J. H. Hayes and Miller, Israelite and Judean History (London: SCM Press, 1977), pp. 213–284.
