Megiddo was one of the last Canaanite cities to hold out against the Israelites, and its strategic importance was clear to the Egyptians and to the author of Revelation, who called it 'Armageddon'. Davies gives an illustrated account of 80 years of excavations at the site and vigorous debates about the interpretation of finds made there. He uses both archaeological and biblical evidence to reconstruct the city's history from before 3000 BCE to Roman times. Cities of the Biblical World series.
