Estimating the Population Size of Ancient Settlements: Methods, Problems, Solutions and a Case Study

Other Titles
Abstract

Survey of previous attempts to estimate the population of ancient settlements and the problems/issues inherent in such demographic studies. The broadly excavated site of Tell en-Nasbeh is used as an example to illustrate such issues and also how these can be obviated to some extent to sometime derive potentially reasonable estimates.
