Since then it has been controlled by several civilizations, including the Canaanites, Israelites, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Crusaders, Kurds, the Mamluks, the Ottoman Turks and it is currently a major city in Israel. Today, it is a mixed city of Jews and Arab citizens of Israel. A small port city, Tell Abu Hawam, existed in the Haifa region in the Late Bronze Age (14th century BCE). The 6 century BCE geographer Scylax describes a city "between the bay and the Promontory of Zeus" (i.e., the Carmel) which may be a reference to Haifa in the Persian period. The city moved to a new site south of what is now Bat Galim, in Hellenistic period, after the old port became blocked with silt. The archaeological site of Shikmona lies southwest of Bat Galim neighbourhood of Haifa.
