Sky View, Reconstruction by J. Rosenberg

CROWNING THE SITE IN DAVID’S TIME. This reconstructed several-story central administrative structure provided a view of—and could be seen towering over—the entire city as well as the surrounding countryside. The entrance to this reconstructed administrative structure faces Qeiyafa’s southern gate, shown in the foreground. Most of the excavation activity at Khirbet Qeiyafa focused on the periphery of the site, near the city’s two gates and casemate walls.
