RUSSELL, Irina  and  ROUX LE, Magdel. 'Global warming' and the movement of the settlers to the highlands of Palestine (circa 1200 - 1000 B.C.E.). Old testam. essays [online]. 2010, vol.23, n.2, pp.322-349. ISSN 2312-3621.

Scholars are divided as to the origins of the settlers in the highlands of Palestine, during Iron Age I. Some (e.g. Rainey) are convinced that they came from the east, while others (e.g. Dever) are of the opinion that they came from the coastal plain. Irrespective of their origins, however, in this article it is proposed that the migration to the highlands was due, at least in part, to the fact that Palestine, from the late 13th century to about 900 B.C.E., became significantly drier.
