I would like to hear if there are readers or authors sharing their interest for this subject. I worked for 5 years on a novel which just got published in the US. Canada etc. Many books had been written about them, most of all scientifically but hardly readable for a great audience which made me decide to give it a shot. Covering for a great deal the tribe of Judea, I wonder what about the other tribes.

The tribes of Judah and Benjamin were the two tribes which were not lost as they formed a separate country - the land of Judea.

The Land of Israel was conquered and the peoples dissipated, mostly to Mesopotamia- a sort of ethnic cleansing. They form the Ten Lost Tribes.

I am quoting here from a book called 'The Bible as History' written by Werner Keller.

" But at the very moment of Solomon's passing, the old tribal dissensions broke out again and the empire of Syria and Palestine was shattered as the inevitable end of the quarrel. Two kingdoms took its place - the kingdom of Israel in the north and the kingdom of Judah in the south.

"It was the Israelite people themselves that gnawed away their own foundations and destroyed their empire. It became only too plain what road they proposed to follow slowly until the bitter end when the inhabitants of Israel fell a prey to the Assyrians, and the inhabitants of Judah a prey to the Babylonians."

You will find it all in Kings I ...
