The Fortified Cities

The Chariot Cities

1 Kings 9:15-17 states that Solomon fortified the cities of Megiddo, Hazor and Gezer mentioning them alongside the “chariot cities”. Interestingly archeologists at Megiddo have discovered two royal stable complexes that had the capacity to hold 480 horses. There may be other stables not yet excavated. The stables discovered held two horses per stall, which is unusual unless the horses work together as a team… as on a chariot!
