Ugarit sept 2009 3898.jpg

Defensive Works begun in the 15th century BC and later rebuilt extensively. One has to realize this place had been built on before, so by then there was a mound, the sides of which were smoothed and covered with stones so attackers would not have a hold. This is the only surviving section of what once must have surrounded the whole town or at least the most important parts. In it there is an entrance and a road which, after a corner to the left has been negotiated, leads to the entrance to the royal palace.
