Tell Balata is an archaeological site on the outskirts of Nablus a major city in Samaria. Tell Balata is identified with Biblical Shechem , an important city in Canaanite and Israelite times. A large stone placed at the mound is suggested to be the “large stone” Joshua erected at the site (Joshua 24:26).

Shechem is in the West Bank, near Samaria-Sebaste. Contact me for a proposal of a full day tour in the West Bank that will also include a visit to the Tell Balata near Shechem, with a Palestinian guide.
