Important sites as seen from Burna

Posted on

At the tel today, gathering the rest of the equipment, decided to take some photos of nearby Iron Age sites – just to give you an idea of what Just to give you all an idea the importance of the placement of each of these sites (including Burna) and how much the view determined the area of control of each of these sites and how they communicated with each other.  first is a map of the area, and then the pics as you would see the sites today.  remember that this would have been even more clear in the Iron Age, with buildings and towers and fortifications on each of these sites.
