The article traces the key historical events that led to the battle of Megiddo in 1479 B.C. Around 1479 BC, Pharaoh Thutmose III marched an army out of Egypt. Their mission was to put down a revolt led by the king of Kadesh, who had forged a powerful coalition of Canaanite city-states bent on wresting control of northern Palestine. The Egyptians crossed the northern Sinai along the coastal road and moved up the coast of Palestine. Just south of modern Caesaria, they turned inland and ascended the Carmel Mountains to the town of Aruna.
