Abstract

The principal objective of the excavation of 1999 was to continue investigation of structures along the interior of the defense walls in the area between the excavations of 1991 and 1994 Figs. 1, 2a.(2) This space is bordered on the east by the long main street of the site. Our results showed that during the period of the citadel's existence (Period 2-4) this was open ground. The houses that had formerly occupied this area were destroyed when the defenses of the citadel were built. This fact confirms our contention that the citadel was home to only a very few privileged households.
