The modern day Beit She’an was established after the foundation of the State of Israel. It was first noted in the 4th century BCE (the Chalcolithic period) as a central hub for caravans and subsequently was under Egyptian rule when they constructed a complex of temples which have been excavated. Beit Shean later on came under the rule of the Canaanites and later under the Israelites during the reign of Solomon.
The Beit She’an Valley is located south of the Sea of Galilee and across the Jordon River, about 60 km south of Tiberias and 120 meters below sea level. The River Jordan constitutes the border between Israel and Jordan. At Beit She’an you will find some amazing archaeological digs from the biblical era.
