Header of Adullam



Adullam is an ancient ruin, built upon a hilltop overlooking the Elah Valley, south of Bet Shemesh in Israel. The hilltop is mostly flat, with cisterns carved into the rock. The remains of stone structures which once stood there can still be seen. Sedimentary layers of ruins from the old Canaanite and Israelite eras, mostly potsherds, are noticeable everywhere, although olive groves now grow atop of this hill, enclosed within stone hedges. The villages of Aderet, Neve Michael/Roglit, and Aviezer are located nearby. Access to the site may be obtained by passing through the cooperative small holder's agricultural villages of Aderet or Neve Michael. The ruin lies at a distance of ca. 2 kilometers south of Moshav Neve Michael.


"Adullam" a.k.a. "Adúllam" is a musical album of Bergsteinn Ómar Óskarsson.
