My article on this topic in Bibliotheca Sacra (details are on my web 
page at www.nyx.net/~dwashbur/cv.html) shows that this was 
indeed the case.  There's a lot of overlap as well as a lot of regional 
activity.  Some will be annoyed that I implicitly take the Judges 
text as portraying real events, but that's their problem :-)  The part 
about the chronology may interest the participants in this part of 
the discussion.
