 Tel Hazor is the biggest archaeological in Israel, measuing 820 Dunams (c. 200 acres).

It was densly inhabited in Canaanite times, and again in Israelite times, till its final destruction by the Assyrians.

Large scale excavations were conducted at the site by Yigael Yadin, and renewed since the 1990’s by Amnon Ben-Tor.

It’s remains and finds are important but lacking explanations, reconstructions, and shade. Being so, it is a bit difficult to appreciate properly the site.
