Sodom gate (Tall el-Hammam)

$5.00

During the excavations of Tall el-Hammam in 2013, a large gatehouse with pillars was found behind the main entrance to the Middle Bronze Age city. This reconstruction drawing shows what the main gate of Tall el-Hammam would have looked like. As the excavator of this archaeological site has identified Tall el-Hammam with Sodom, it appears that this was the gate mentioned in Genesis 19.1, where we read the Lot sat in the gate of Sodom. The drawing shows a right angled pathway through the gatehouse with a space at the side where the elders and judges of the city congregated.
