Tall al-Ajjul is an archaeological tell in the Gaza Strip which dates back to 2100 B.C. The exact location of Tall al-Ajjul is located at the mouth of the Ghazzah Wadi just south of the town of Gaza. In 1930-1934 Tall al-Ajjul was excavated by British archaeologists under the direction of Sir Flinders Petrie, who thought the site was ancient Gaza, as it is sometimes known.
In 1999 and 2000 the excavations were renewed by Peter M. Fischer because of a common interest in the protection and exploration of the site, for the moment interrupted due to the political circumstances.
