Azekah

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 of 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.

Best part of productions can be the unexpected moments when things go better then planned! So it did for us when filming at tel Azeqah, the site that was possibly the Philistime camp, the site from where Goliath stood and cursed the Israelites and their God, the site from where he descended to the valley to confront the young red head shepherd – David. In addition to the great weather, we also found by chance a local drone operator to get some great shots of the fimling!. Thank you @omerfaingold for providing such great scenes! @azeqah_excavations @tau @tauarcheology #telazeqah #davidandgoliath #biblicalarchaeology #kingdavid #goliath #mediaproductions #drone #DJImavic #tourguidelife #places_wow #wonderful_places #instatravel #earthfocus #natgeotravel #neverstopexploring #instatravel #traveling #travelgram #travelling #mytravelgram #travelingram #igtravel #traveler #travelphotography #worldtrip #travelandlife #sidewalkerdaily #majestic_earth #israelinstagram
