Tel Be’er Sheva

tel sheva beer shevaTel Be’er Sheva is an archaeological site some 5 km NE of Beer-Sheva . It was excavated mostly by Yohanan Aharoni in the years 1969 to 1975.

The ancient mound proved to be a well planned small town from the Iron age, most likely an administation center near ancient Beer-Sheva, whose name was “Sheva” (Joshua 19:1).

The most significant find at the site is an Israelite horned altar (now at the Israel Museum  ).

In 2007 the UN recognised Tel Be’er Sheva as a “World Heritage Sties”.
