Presenting Tel-Lachish to “The Watchman”, 2018
Lachish was the second most important and wll built city in Biblical times, utterly destroyed by the Assyrians in 701 BCE, and again by the Babylonians in 586 BCE.
Excavtions at the site discovered many remains of Biblical times, especially of the Assyrian assault, yet today the site is not maintained well, and requires imagination (and a good guide..) to appreciate the site.
Tel Lachish ( Hebrew: תל לכיש; Greek: Λαχις; Latin: Tel Lachis), is the site of an ancient Near East city, now an archaeological site and an Israeli national park. Lachish is located in the Shephelah region of Israel between Mount Hebron and the Mediterranean coast.
