Hazor, a small, unremarkable town in the Negev Desert in southern Israel, may have been one of the most important cities in ancient Israel. Excavations there in the late 1960s and 1970s uncovered evidence that Hazor was not just a small town, but a great citadel of the Bible, a center of power and trade in biblical times. The discoveries have led to a reevaluation of the historicity of Hazor and the importance of the city in the development of ancient Israel.; 4to ; 280 pages.
