I apply the integrative approach to a number of monumental buildings in Chapters 5 through 7. Two buildings from Enkomi dating back to the beginning of the LBA, the Ashlar Building (analyzed in Chapter 5) and the Fortress (analyzed in Chapter 6), lend themselves to a biographical approach. Both buildings underwent a series of reconstructions during their long use lives, providing an opportunity to examine the significance of diachronic changes in monumentality and spatial configuration to processes of place-making that played out at various scales.
