The Lower City

Throughout the Middle Bronze Age and Late Bronze Age periods, most of the inhabitants lived in the valley next to the mound. During these periods, the lower city was surrounded by an earthen rampart. Yigael Yadin excavated many cultic installations in this area, and even discovered the famous "Tunnel of the Princes," which were a catacomb of royal tombs located in Area F.
