Taanach (2)

The present Tannuk lies six miles north-west of Zerin (Jezreel), and is "a small village on the south-east side of the great tell or mound of the same name, at the [south-west] edge of the great plain[of Esdraelon]. It has olives on the south, and wells on the north, and is surrounded by cactus hedges. There is a white dome in the village... The rock on the sides of the tell is quarried in places, the wells are ancient, and rock-cut tombs occur on the north, near the foot of the mound" (Memoirs to Ordnance Survey, 2:46; comp. page 63).
