Biblical Tels - Megiddo, Hazor, Beer Sheba

From the three mounds that form this site, so far I only have postcards from Tel Megiddo

This postcard was sent by Debora

Megiddo (Hebrewמגידו‎; Arabicمجیدو‎, Tell al-Mutesellim, "The Tell of the Governor") is a tell in northern Israel near Kibbutz Megiddo, about 30 km south-east of Haifa, known for its historical, geographical, and theological importance, especially under its Greek name Armageddon. In ancient times Megiddo was an important city-state. Excavations have unearthed 26 layers of ruins, indicating a long period of settlement. Megiddo is strategically located at the head of a pass through the Carmel Ridge overlooking the Jezreel Valley from the west.

The site is now protected as Megiddo National Park and is a World Heritage Site. - in: wikipedia
