Abstract The location of Ziklag has never been convincingly identified. Current opinion among many archaeologists regards Tell Shari'ah as the most probable site, although formerly this site was identified with the toponymically-corresponding Sharuhen. Felix Fabri, on his journey from Hebron to Gaza in 1483, climbed a large mound he believed to be Ziklag. The evidence for the location of this mound is here brought together and considered.
