Ancient History & Archaeology

Palestine has historically been a centre of political, cultural, social, and spiritual life in the Middle East. Around 3,000 BC, Semitic migrations to Palestine from the Arabian Peninsula began and the Amorites and Canaanites were the first to migrate to Palestine, followed by the Jebusites, the Aramites, the Moabites, the Ammorites and the Nabataeans. The Hebrews arrived in approximately 1020 BC.

The country's incredibly rich and diverse archaeological history is a testament to Palestine's ancient past and can be studied and understood thanks to the finds from numerous excavated sites found throughout Palestine.  These sites yield an enormous variety of artefacts including ancient tools, pottery, sculptures, mosaics, drawings, cave dwellings, burial places, temples, shrines, castles, fortresses, and even entire cities.

We are happy to advise and help organise visits to any number of archaeological sites and museums and cultural centres. Please contact us .
