Areas D Gallery
In area D, on the eastern flanks of the mound, we aimed at investigating the development of the fortification system through time. Two phases of MB IB occupation in the lower part of the slope were cut by the erection of a stone glacis during the Late Bronze Age I, which encircled at least the north-eastern corner of the site. A public building characterized by productive installations and a rich pottery assemblage was documented in the upper part of the area. During the Iron Age III a massive fortification walls running through the area followed the shape of the mound.
