An archaeological survey led by researchers from Tenri University is underway in Israel to locate Anaharath, a city mentioned in the Old Testament.

"This is the likeliest place," Yoshinobu Tatsumi, a curator at Tenri University Sankokan Museum in Tenri, Nara Prefecture, said.

Tatsumi was describing Tel Rekhesh, a hilly site with a history dating back over multiple periods. It is 350 by 150 meters in size and is located around 70 km north of Jerusalem.
