Chapter Summary

Excavation of a series of clearly delineated rooms (R601-R605) along the south and east sides of Building 600 during the 1991 and 1992 seasons suggested an impressive structure, either a large house or caravanserai. The stratigraphy of structures visible above ground level in Field D (B600, B625) differs from that of Iron Age remains recovered in Fields A-B and E, in that these earlier structures were all buried under topsoil. Because of the preservation above ground of its major walls, Building 600 suffered considerable damage since its initial abandonment as well as in modern times when its internal debris layers were seriously disturbed. The outer walls of Building 600 (W6002, 6003, 6004, 6005) serve as the major support walls, and are bonded to one another at the four corners.
