Megiddo | Israel

One of the most in-tact archeological sites we visited was Tel Megiddo. This hill, located in northern Israel in the Valley of Jezreel, has been a desirable plot of land over time. The city was always heavily fortified and boasted a powerful defense wall. Obtaining water while maintaining the city's security was a challenge and resulted in the construction of along tunnel system connecting Megiddo to an outside water source that was well hidden (see bottom). This town is also the site referred to as Armageddon in Revelation chapter 16.
