Path Perfect: Reclaiming Jezreel

Based on the results of the LiDAR, the expedition conducted a landscape survey over approximately 1.16 square miles. They documented 25 cave tombs, 35 rock-cut tombs, 57 agricultural installations, 21 quarries, 68 cisterns, 94 walls and 26 natural caves that had been adapted for human use. These they documented using a handheld GPS unit, measuring, photographing and describing each one. They thus began to realize that Jezreel was much larger than scholars had previously imagined.

Nice article, but certainly not a longue duree view. The article is full of events, full of people, full of the ups and downs of history. The longue duree approach is about structures that develop slowly. I think this article is a good example of why the longue duree is often not an adequate view. That is not to say that we shouldn't look at things over long time spans, but that's probably better done by hermeneutical history.
