Bronze Bow Maps

Multiple maps and activities to correspond to the novel The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare.

Bronze Bow Map of Major Towns


Village of Ketzah

The village of Ketzah is a fictitious town in The Bronze Bow where much of the action takes place.

Ketzah was on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee, three miles from Capernaum.

It was a small village named after the Ketzah spice which was said to be harvested there.

The black and white map in The Bronze Bow Unit Study shows the location of Ketzah compared to the other towns mentioned in the story as well as the site of the attack in Chapter 19.

Provinces of Palestine

Bronze Bow - Provinces of Palestine

Galilee and the culture of the Galileans is prominent in The Bronze Bow. The map illustrates the major provinces, the cities mentioned within the province of Galilee, and their location around the famous geographical features of Isreal. Black and white drawings in the unit study allow students to color the different provinces.

Geographical Features

Bronze Bow Map of Major Towns, Rivers, Seas

The geographical features map acquaints readers with the major features of Isreal: In the 34th from the last paragraph of the first chapter of The Bronze Bow, Daniel, Joel, and Malthace stand on the mountain, look down on the village of Ketzah and the sea of Galilee to the south, the Lake Merom to the north and the Jordan River connecting them.

Another geographical activity done during the unit is to make the outline of the Sea of Galilee, Jordan River, and Dead Sea out of a long piece of yarn. Students then "hop scotch" to the geographical features and provinces of Galilee, Samaria, and Judea as they are called out. Major cities can also be included in this game.

The Roman Empire and Palestine

Of course the Roman Empire is a major force in the novel. The map of the world illustrates the reach of the empire and the location of Israel.
