The Unesco World Heritage Site of Tel Hazor National Park is located between Rosh Pina and Metula in the Upper Galilee region of Israel. The site has two parts, the acropolis and the lower city and is recognized as one of the most important archaeological sites in the country.
Tel Hazor has a rich archaeological history and recent excavations have uncovered seeds of 3400 year old burnt wheat contained in 14 large clay jugs found in a storage room. This has added to the rich biblical history and previous fascinating discoveries that include a restored Canaanite Palace, a gate and walls from the time of King Solomon and the Israelite water system that is regarded as one of the engineering marvels of that time.
When touring the region we recommend stopping in at the Hazor antiquities museum as well.
