Megiddo is the crown jewel of biblical archaeology. Strategically perched above the most important land route in the ancient Near East, the city dominated international traffic for over 6,000 years — from ca. 7,000 B.C.E. through the biblical period. 

The 2016-17 fieldwork primarily centered on the eastern side of the temple complex access area (Field G). We noticed the curious existence of a massive stone sequence on the surface, ascending westward up the hill toward the temple complex’s roughly east-west orientation.
