You can also compare the lifestyle described in Genesis to archaeological findings to find a match.Whether Moses was the first to write down the stories of Abraham and his descendents or served as an editor himself, we just don't know. It is difficult to find fixed events in Genesis that can be connected absolutely to dates established from archaeology.
