Tell Halif F7 House

In my book Household Food Storage in Ancient Israel and Judah I investigated several archaeological examples of houses. As part of that I also made some visualisations of the houses, which can be viewed here.

The visualisations were used to get measurements, to help with the interpretation for the space and to show what spaces might have approximately looked like. The detailed analysis of the spaces themselves can be found in the book, but here I’ll show several images taken from the visualisations.

Tell Halif is a tell in southern Judah at a point where the Negev, the Shephelah and the Judean Highlands meet. The houses I analyzed were from the Iron Age IIB, or about 700 BCE. The Tell Halif F7 was analyzed by Jimmy Hardin. Here’s a plan I made:
