Camel Domestication in the Ancient Near East

A discussion of the date of camel domestication in the Ancient Near East, specifically in reference to the alleged anachronism of domesticated camels in the Patriarchal narratives.



Camels are really interesting.


I totally agree that camels could have been domesticated before 930 A.D. I can see the opposition though. I don't think people should worry about this, it's a silly thing to argue about.


This is a very interesting article that really makes your consider sources and history.
