Ancient Yodfat was a Jewish town in Hellenistic and early Roman times.

In 67 CE it was attacked by massive Roman force, comprising of three legions and auxiliray forces, and after 47 days of seige it was conquored and destroyed. 

According to Josephus 40,000 men were killed and 1200 women and children were enslaved. 

Yodfat was burnt and razed, and never settled again. 

Between 1992 to 2000 excavations carried at the site uncovered dramatic remains of the battle and the death of the Jewish defenders.
