“Notes" is a too modest title for this very important publication. The American excavations at Tell el-Mutesellim have revealed a series of seven prehistoric strata on the Eastern slope of the tell. The study of the pottery found in these strata gives a good base for defining the evolution of culture in Palestine after "Natufian" and before the Bronze Age, or at least a considerable part of the evolution: for the beginnings of pottery-manufacture in Palestine are not found at Megiddo. The authors have discussed their problems with great care and very cautiously; but it is clear, that their contributions are of great value for determining questions concerning "foreign" influence in Palestine.
