The Biblical account of Joshua's capture of Hazor
Editado por: BNPRESS | This season's excavations at Tel Hazor National Park in the Upper Galilee conducted by Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Israel Nature and Parks Authority (INPA) uncovered 14 large pithoi-style storage jugs filled with 3,300-year-old burnt wheat.
The jugs were located inside a storage room in a monumental, palace-like building from the Canaanite period (2,000-3,000 BC), INPA said on July 25th, 2012.
"Hazor flourished during the Middle Canaanite period (1,750 BC) and during the Israelite period, and generated the biggest fortified complex in Israel during this period," said Dr. Zvika Tsuk, chief archeologist of the INPA.
Professor Amnon Ben-Tor of Hebrew University said the jugs were destroyed around the 13th century BC, a period which coincided with the Biblical account of Joshua's capture of Hazor. According to Joshua chapter 11, Hazor was the only city in the Land of Israel destroyed by fire during the conquest.
