Arad: Canaanite city, street

One of the city streets runs from bottom left to top right of this photo. The chief excavator, Amiran, claimed to find "a grid of streets", however others looking at the plan of the site debate this. Perhaps the combination of regularity and irregularity we see is the result not of centralized town planning but of a society where family needs and desires were subject to the opinion and requirements of the wider community.
