*[[W:Ashkelon|Ashkelon]] was a large and important seaport in ancient [[W:Canaan|Canaan]]. Its name was later corrupted to "Ascalon" by the English Crusaders. The "Battle of Ascalon" is generally considered to be the last battle of the First Crusade. It was finally destroyed for the last time in 1270 C.E. by the [[W:Mamluk|Mamluks]]. The ruins rest in what is now [[W:Israel|Israel]]'s South District.
