 Ancient Beth Shemesh was a Canaanite and Israelite town about 30 km west of Jerusalem.

Its Hebrew name (“House of Sun”) probably suggests a local Canaanite worship center for a Sun God “Shemesh”.

The Biblical city terminated by the Babylonian in 586 BCE.

The Site was excavated by three different expeditions, The third, of Tel-Aviv University, is active at the site to this day.

Near the site is a modern city by the same name.
