Megiddo, world-renown and celebrated, is the jewel in the crown of Biblical archaeology. Strategically perched above the Jezreel Valley, it guards the most important land route in the Ancient Near East--the Via Maris leading from Egypt to Mesopotamia. Megiddo dominated international traffic for over 6000 years--from c.7000 BCE through the Biblical era--and today is considered one of Israel’s most significant archaeological sites. As a World Heritage Site, Megiddo’s many monuments dating to the times reflected in the Bible offer everyone a special opportunity to view study and enjoy the ancient biblical world.
