Beersheba: four roomed house

(18 of 18)


In Iron Age Israel there were two common styles of house "four-room" and "three-room". Four-room houses had two rows of pillars while three-room houses usually had one off center row of pillars. One entered a central hall, the pillars and a wall at the end made small rooms. Sometimes rooms were subdivided.
