View looking south at the water system that was located on the north side of the mound (= #7 on labeled model) — just outside the Israelite city gates.


The stair case in the upper right portion of the image leads down from the outer gate complex (#1b) to the area where a water reservoir was located (the parched area in the bottom half of the image.


The University of Chicago expedition called this staircase a “processional way” but Yadin’s excavations have demonstrated that it was part of a water system located at the city gate.
