More about this marker. This marker is located in the Tel Hazor National Park, in midst of the ruins of the various layers of ancient cultures. It is my impression that these ancient ruins are very significant in both the historical and archaeological record of ancient Israel, because several of the artifacts and structural elements that were found in these particular ruins are now on display in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
Hazor is also part of the Biblical record, being referenced nineteen (19) times, in eight (8) different books of the Old Testament.
