History of Israel


This site uses AM, which avoids dealing with any dates "Before Zero" within the span of recorded history, and makes math simple. To translate from Hebrew years to civil calendar years (bce or BC), subtract 3760.

This page contains only the briefest outline of events over several thousand years.
