Tel Hazor, Israel 🇮🇱

    Hazor, the largest biblical-era site in Israel, covered in the second millennium BCE an area of some 200 acres. The Canaanite city consisted of both an Upper and a Lower city, and its population is estimated to have been about 10,000-15,000 people.
     In the Book of Joshua, Hazor is described as "the head of all those kingdoms" (Josh. 11:10). Though some scholars do not consider the Book of Joshua to be historically accurate, archaeological excavations have emphasized its importance.
      According to the Biblical narrative, Jabin, the King of Hazor, headed a coalition of Canaanite cities against the advancing Israelites, led by Joshua. The Israelites won the battle and Joshua burned and ravaged the city (Jos. 11:1 – 12)
