Product Description

Discover ancient Hazor’s amazing history in this summary of 30 excavation seasons by long-time Hazor dig director Amnon Ben-Tor. From its humble roots in the Early Bronze Age, Hazor rose to be the largest and most important Canaanite city-state in the Land of Israel during the second millennium B.C.E. At its height, Hazor covered about 200 acres, 10 times the size of Jerusalem in the days of King David and King Solomon. Destroyed by a massive fire in the Late Bronze Age, Hazor rose again during the days of the United Monarchy. Extensive fortifications, public structures and residential buildings date from the tenth century B.C.E. until the time of Hazor’s destruction in 732 B.C.E. (2 Kings 15:29). Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of colorful images, maps and plans, Hazor: Canaanite Metropolis, Israelite City provides a deep understanding of the political, economic and cultural history of one of the most important cities in the Land of Israel an understanding that helps to illuminate and contextualize the Biblical text. This authoritative book is perfect for the scholar and layperson alike.
