Horvat Tevet is a small site in the rural hinterlands of the Jezreel Valley. Excavations at the site revealed unique finds from early monarchic Israel. These finds shed light on the royal economy which enabled the formation and maintenance of early monarchic Israel, and thus shed new light on its origins. In this lecture, I will present the finds from Horvat Tevet, demonstrating that it functioned as an administrative center for a royal Israelite estate. Consequently, I will discuss the implication of that to our understanding of the origins and formation of early monarchic Israel.
