Tel Hazor is one of the largest, most important biblical sites in the Canaanite and Israelite periods. The bible gave it the title: “the head of all those kingdoms”.
Tel Hazor is an archaeological site of ancient Hazor, located in Upper Galilee, north of the Sea of Galilee.
Its prime location on the main transportation routh made it an important city. This road bypassed the impossible way through the desert, and was an important link between the two strong empires of the ancient world: Egypt on the south, and Mesopotamia (Babylon, Assyria, Persia) on the north.
