Working in the ruins of a vast city, archaeologists Mark Lehner of the Harvard Semitic Museum and Mohsen Kamal of UCLA map what they believe was a gatehouse in the area they call the royal production center. In it food was prepared, supplies received, and tools for the pyramid builders manufactured and repaired. Nearby lies a grid of streets from which extend long, narrow buildings that hold large quantities of fish, cattle, sheep, and goat bones and evidence of bread baking and copper forging.
