WHAT HE FOUND. Despite later quarrying (shaded in green), Weill discovered ancient walls (“M” in purple [mur is French for “wall”] and “B” in red), ritual pools (“P” in orange), cisterns (“C” in blue) and a circular tower (“H” in brown) now believed to be a columbarium. The most remarkable finds, however, were nine rock-cut features that Weill identified as “tombs” (T1–T8 are in yellow on this plan; T9 was farther south). He identified the three most prominent tombs (T1–T3)—the only ones he described in his report—as part of the royal necropolis of the kings of Judah.
