CANAANITE POWERHOUSE. During the Bronze Age, Hazor was a powerful Canaanite city—remembered as “the head of all those kingdoms” in Joshua 11:10. Some 10 miles north of the Sea of Galilee and 30 miles southwest of Mt. Hermon, Hazor sat on major trade routes connecting Mesopotamia and Egypt. With an upper city (center) and expansive lower city (see left), Hazor spans more than 200 acres, making it the largest archaeological site in Israel. On the upper city, archaeologists have found temples, palaces, and public buildings—but no houses. They have, however, found some dwellings in the lower city.
