The mound of Megiddo is situated in northern Israel on southwestern edge of the Jezreel Valley. It controls a pass that leads through Mt. Carmel and thus it was of considerable strategic importance. Four different excavations of Megiddo have been mounted since 1903 up through the present.
It is 15 acres [6 ha.] in size. Over 20 strata (levels of civilization) have been found at the site.
