Abstract

Tell Abilel-Qamehu is the northernmost site in Israel, some 6.5 km northwest of Tel Dan and 30 km north of Hazor. It is approximately 10 ha in area with a prominent upper tell in the north and a flat lower tell in the south (fig. 1). From its vantage point overlooking the northern end of the Hula Valley, the tell commands roads that lead north to the Beq'a Valley and the Lebanese coast, and northeast towards inland Syria and Mesopotamia (fig. 2).
