Azekah is a major site in the Judean Shephela settled in Canaanite and Biblical times.
Mentioned six times in the Bible, its most famous description is in the battle between David and Goliath (I Sam. 17). Although excavated nearly entirely on the turn of the 20th century, Azekah is now (since 2102) excavated again by an expedition of Tel-Aviv university and Heidelberg University.
Much of the renewed interest is due to the discovery and excavations of Khirbet Qeiyafa in recent years.
