Abstract Until the 90’s, there was a common belief shared among biblical scholars, that the region of Judah was utterly destroyed and uninhabited in the years following the Babylonian conquest in 587-86 B.C.E. However, in the last decades, new historical investigations and archaeological excavations have demonstrated the continued existence and restoration of a prosperous Judean material culture between 586 and 538 B.C.E. Numerous sites, located in the central Judean area, such as Tel-el-Fûl, Tell en-Nasbeh, Beitin, Ej-Jîb, En-Gedi, were not affected and, in fact, prospered in the later sixth century. They created a modest regional market, but an essential wheel in the economic system of the Neo-Babylonian Empire. At least, the central rural area of Benjamin can no longer be described as a empty land.
