Megiddo is a tel in Israel, whose name is linked to the Biblical Book of Revelations concept of the ultimate battle at Armageddon. There is a significant archeological site with evidence of past battles,[1] designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.[2] The tel was first excavated in 1903, and since then has been the subject of archaeological investigations in the 1920s, 1930s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1990s.[3]
