Map of the territories allotted to the twelve tribes of Israel according to the Book of Joshua, chapters 13-19, before the move of Dan to the North.

Note that these territories were only allegedly allotted to said tribes, and the texts themselves indicate that the tribes had troubles conquering all these areas and cities from the native peoples. The biblical account may also be far from historically accurate and has been disputed by scholars.
