Tell el-Ajjul was a fortified Bronze Age settlement located in what is now Gaza. Evidence from the site indicates economic interaction with ancient Egypt.

31.467665, 34.404297



Significant amounts of volcanic pumice have been discovered at the site. These deposits may result from the Bronze Age eruption of the Thera (Santorini) volcano. Archaeological excavation at the site occurred in 1930-1934 under Sir Flinders Petrie. Excavations resumed in 1999 and 2000 but were then interrupted by Second Intifada.
