The Mudbrick Gate in the Tel of Dan
This gate was filled in 3,500 years ago, during an ancient “urban renewal.” You can still see the stone pavement leading to the gate. Note the mud brick arch over the supported entrance. Just inside the entrance are the gate chambers typical of Middle Eastern gates. The whole structure is under a roof, to protect it from the elements. Archaeologists believe this gate, built around 1800 BC, was there when Abraham visited the area during his rescue of Lot (Gen. 14:14).
