Jewish settlement in the southeastern Hula Valley in the ﬁrst century CE
Clear delineation of the material culture of the various inhabitants of the valley provides an important means to deﬁne settlement boundaries in the ﬁrst century CE. Josephus had in mind such boundaries when describing the extent of Jewish Galilee. The following analysis of the results of a recent Hula Valley archaeological survey will provide the data that shows such demarcations. Moreover, it provides important new evidence that identiﬁes the location of ‘Thella on the Jordan’, the Jewish village which, according to Josephus, formed the northeastern limit of Jewish Galilee.
