The Pillared House

The Pillared House dates to the 9th-8th century BCE. Like the Four-Room House, this public building was initially discovered in the area above what is now known as the Canaanite Palace. Though similar to stables from the same period, the two rows of columns served as bases for the rooftop that spanned above, allowing light and air to penetrate from its upper sides.
