GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT. The final season at Khirbet Qeiyafa uncovered not only the administrative structure at the center of the site but also this pillared storage building in the northern part of the city. This type of structure, which would have originally included two rows of pillars, is well known from Iron Age Israelite sites. The large building would have served as a centralized structure for agricultural produce collected from across the region.
