The Amorites are identified in Genesis 10:16 as descendants of Canaan, son of Ham. They are described as a powerful people of great stature "like the height of the cedars," who had occupied the land east and west of the Jordan; their king, Og, is described as the last "of the remnant of the giants" (Deut. 3:11). They seem to have originally occupied the region stretching from the heights west of the Dead Sea (Gen. 14:7) to Hebron (13:8; Deut. 3:8; 4:46-48), embracing "all Gilead and all Bashan" (Deut. 3:10), with the Jordan valley on the east of the river (4:49), the land of the "two kings of the Amorites," Sihon and Og (Deut. 31:4; Josh. 2:10; 9:10).

From the collection of Alex G. Malloy, former dealer in antiquities for 40 years.

In Canaan, in the Intermediate and Early and Middle Bronze Age, c. 2200 - 1570 B.C., most people lived in meager settlements of sheds and round huts. Cemeteries and funerary offerings are the principle remnants of the culture. The tombs and mortuary methods reveals that those interred with copper daggers, the warrior's weapon of the period, were awarded preferential treatment in death.
