ELITE EDIFICE. Building 100 reflects Jerusalem’s wealth during the closing centuries of the Iron Age. Archaeologists excavated a row of three rooms (A, B, and C) that made up the ground floor of a large two-story building. The entire structure originally measured about 65 by 55 feet, making it one of the largest buildings discovered from Iron Age Jerusalem. Its dimensions, construction, and luxurious artifacts suggest the building was used for official ceremonies and social gatherings hosted by one of the kingdom’s most senior officials.
