For my part I do not believe Building 5900 was a granary, but rather an administrative building. The plan fits that of the “four-room” house, although Building 5900 is much bigger than domestic dwellings of that type, and as mentioned above it does not fit the pattern of the tripartite buildings. See Yigal Shiloh, “The Four-Room House: Its Situation and Function in the Israelite City,” IEJ, vol. 20 (1970), pp. 180–190; Stager, “The Archaeology of the Family in Ancient Israel,” Bulletin of the American Schools of Oriental Research 260 (1985), pp. 11–22; John S. Holladay, “House, Israelite,” Anchor Bible Dictionary vol. 3, pp. 308–318; King and Stager, Life in Biblical Israel, pp. 28–35.
