Right here. The main conclusion I could gather from the articles was that pottery dating is a tricky business, and, since local pottery of the Middle Bronze IIC and Late Bronze I is extremely similar, some other dating method, such as radiocarbon dating, should be used to determine the destruction of an MB IIC/LBIA site. Fortunately, the dating has been done, on very reliable samples (charred short-lived grains), and has demonstrated that Jericho City IVc was destroyed before c. 1500 BC (though probably after c. 1550 BC).
