Israel (The Northern Kingdom)

Kingdom in the northern half of Palestine (922-722 B.C.).

The northernmost part of Palestine consists of mountains, hills, and valleys. It is crossed by the large Jezreel Plain that runs east to west from the Mediterranean to the Jordan River. South of this plain is central Palestine, which consists of rolling hills and valleys.

This region became an independent country when the kingdom divided in 922 B.C. It remained independent until it was conquered by the Assyrians in 722 B.C.
