If anyone knows any of the following, it'd be nice to find.

Geographical information (Specifically in relation to the climate and weather.)
Extraterrestrial "Conspiracy" Theories regarding the location (most especially if related to time travel or the Samarian Goddess of Fate, Ashima)

Furthermore, is a city still in Samaria? Or is it just ruins? If there is actually a city where Samaria is located-and not just nearby-then are there any underground tunnels actually below the city (I've heard how some cities like in London have their underground tunnels from centuries ago, whatever the reasoning may be)?

Thanks for any provided information.

That didn't help much.

Except for a map, not really related to my question. :< Sorry.

The city of Samaria is located 7 miles northwest of Shechem (or Nablus), a Palestinian city in the hills of Samaria, which makes up the northern portion of the West Bank. The area where the city of Samaria is located is a somewhat Mediterranean climate. Temperatures range from the low to mid-70s in the summer to low to high 40s in the winter. Rainfall averages around 30 to 35 inches annually.

The city is now a national park that lies between Shechem and Sabastia. In the 8th and 9th centuries BCE, Samaria was the capital of the Kingdom of Israel. A fortress, walls, the royal palace, and dwellings from this time period are still there in the park. An amphitheater and a forum from the late Roman occupation during the 2nd century CE also can be seen. A mosque in Sabastia is built on the ruins of a Crusader church dedicated to John the Baptist, which was itself built on Byzantine ruins. As far as I am aware, there are no underground tunnels; however, there are most likely ruins buried beneath what is currently visible.

Zecharia Sitchin wrote a series of books entitled The Earth Chronicles in which he posited that the deities of the area were actually settlers from a distant planet known as Nibiru, which has an elongated 3,600-year orbit around our sun. This most likely is his interpretation of the word Nibru or Nibiru, which is found in many Semitic texts from the time period (roughly 4,000 years ago). The Nibiru most probably is a reference to the Semitic people themselves, including the Israelites and Hittites of the time.

Interesting, thanks.
