Description

Chapter 5 focuses on the establishment of the perimeter of the sacred precinct in the 7th century, paralleling the Herodian period precinct. The major gates on all sides were also determined in this period and there are clear architectural indications that there was an arcade on the northern and eastern sides of the precinct.
