granary
Description
Quibell pp.9-10: The granary (n 5) is a double one with a central court : on the inside partition walls doors are painted with red for the frame and white for the panels : there are holes in the roof to pour in the grain. A lot of real grain had been placed in it, both in the granaries and on the floor of the court. A stair leads up on to one roof. There is a workable door to the model which would once open and shut on a pivot hinge. Two scribes sit on the roof of one granary and write.
