6-Chambered Gate at Gezer

2_Gezer_SolomonicGate One of the markers of the 10th century in Israel is the presence of 6-chambered gates and their attached casemate walls.  They can be found primarily at three important sites: Megiddo, Hazor, and Gezer.  These at Gezer are a beautiful example, with the city’s main drainage channel—which would have run under the street—exposed.
