BUILD LIKE AN AEGEAN. In about 1600 B.C. the inhabitants of Kabri constructed a fancy, expensive building against the western wall of the palace. As shown in the photo above, the inside walls of the new structure are lined at floor level with wide orthostats (large upright stones) between 1.3 and 5 feet long—an architectural feature better known in Minoan palaces on Crete.
