The Passageway

Sometime in the Canaanite period, a basalt staircase was built to connect the lower city with the upper city. New installations were added in the Late Canaanite period, including a cultic high place (bamah) and standing stones (matseboth). Four holes were drilled into one of the slabs of stone in order to support a throne. (See 11 KIngs 23:8)
