Yakama Sun shows Ahtaneum Ridge the division between the Yakima Valley and the Yakama Nation reservation. The Ruins at Arad show Canaanite ruins circa 2800 BC. The modern town of Arad is nearby. It is generally accepted that Arad has been continuously inhabited for 5000 years. The town of Arad is mentioned twice in the Bible (Numbers 21:1-3 and Joshua 12:14).
