December 2nd 2010

Tel Gezer National Park’s history dates back to biblical times and has been an important location for many historic periods including the Canaanite and Crusader periods. Today, Tel Gezer National Park has become the most excavated site in Israel. A many discoveries here have Biblical significance, including a double cave, nine boundary stones with inscriptions, a six-chambered gate similar in appearance to those found in Megiddo, and a large water system that hooks up to a spring. Many other archaeological finds from the Bronze Age and the early Israelite kingdoms are also on display.
