Dagan (2009) recently presented an analysis of the settlement history of Khirbet Qeiyafa based on a survey he conducted at the site. His analysis conflicts with the results obtained by the current Khirbet Qeiyafa excavation project. In this article, we compare the two alternative analyses. In light of this comparison, we consider some of the limitations of surveying as a tool of archaeological investigation.
