The paper discusses the Stratum 5 fortress at 'En Haseva, excavated by Cohen and Yisrael. It argues that the casemate wall of the fortress and its monumental gate form the substructure of the complex and not the superstructure as presented by the excavators. The floor levels extended roughly at the top of the preserved stone walls, while the superstructure, which was not preserved, was probably built of mudbrick.
