About this Book

From the Cities of the Biblical World series a series describing the recent archaeological developments at major Biblical sites for the general reader, the student and the tourist.

"The capturing of Megiddo is a capturing of a thousand towns." So wrote Thutmosis III, an Egyptian Pharaoh of the fifteenth century BC. Its important as a battleground was also clear to the author of the New Testament book of Revelation, who called it Armageddon, and to many others down to Viscount Allenby in 1918.

During the past eighty years German, American and Israeli archaeologists have uncovered the remains of this ancient city, one of the last Canaanite cities to hold out against the Israelites. It then became a royal fortress under such kings as Solomon and Ahab. This is the first book to give a comprehensive and illustrated account of these finds and the vigorous debates about their interpretation. It includes chapters about the interpretation and geographical setting of the site, the different expeditions which have worked there, and the history of the city from before 3000 BC until Roman times. It also includes a guided tour around the sites for visitors to Megiddo.
