Samaria (Hebrew: somron) was a region of Palestine comprising the northern kingdom of Israel created when north and south split after the death of Solomon (c. 930 BCE) The region was named after its capital city, Samaria. Assyria captured Samaria in 721 BCE and it was at this time that the general usage of 'Samaria' for the region appears to have started. Human habitation in the city of Samaria can be traced back to at least 3,000 BCE. Read Article: History, Geography, Religion of Samaria in Palestine
