Lachish, cont’d.

December 3, 2010

Our previous post shows an aerial shot of Lachish.  Today’s post will get us back on ground level.

I mentioned in that previous post that you can see the siege mound laid by the Assyrians in 701 BC.  Our photo below shows the mound.

As you ascend the western side of the city, you can see a portion of the ancient wall, as well as the entrance to the city gate.

Finally, here is a sunset view from inside the city gate of Lachish.
