Looking north along the street to the east of the Great Bath. The building on the right is a single large structure called the College, and may have been the residence of priests or other elites (see Slide 38).
Looking south along the street to the east of the Great Bath. In the foreground is a unique brick platform with hollow sockets used to place upright beams that may have formed a gate or traffic control device.
The main street running north south along the east edge of the Great Bath ends with this unique brick platform. The hollow sockets would have held wooden beams that may have formed a gate or traffic control device.
The doors of later buildings can be seen in the upper levels of the wall to the left. The gradual tapering of the walls in the far right was an intentional architectural feature to avoid collapse of the upper floors.
Some houses had small staircases leading to a second story or to a platform for pouring water into a bathing area.
Looking north along First Street. The area to the left has been fully excavated and the area to the right is unexcavated. Later street levels are seen in the background.
Oxcarts could not reach many of the urban neighborhoods. Pack animals and pedestrians could have used this narrow lane.
