So the reason we are discussing Jericho... is that the archaeology says no city existed from 1550BC-1100BC... So there was no city for Joshua to conquer.

If there are scarabs of pharoahs here, then the 1550BC date turns into 1435BC.

The more interesting date to me is the 1100BC. Remember Joshua is after Moses. And I have Moses with Ramses 4/5, around 1113BC. This is in spitting distance of that 1100BC date. I would think what if this city was either being rebuilt, or had just finished being rebuilt, when Joshua conquered it? So my vote is on the 1100BC date.
