10/28/08 Troy 6 represents all of the bronze age. It begins about 1700Bc and was destroyed around 1250BC. Part of it overlaps with the bulk of the mycenean civilization and the new kingdom of the Hittite culture in Anatolia. Theres a citadel at this point, a protected palace structure. There are 8 building phases all within the same strata of building. A new style of fortification wall comes out. The angle is still there, but now the wall is built with carefully cut blocks instead of field stones. Called ashlar masonry. They are not always exactly the same size. The wall had 5 gates that were spaced rather unevenly. Everything made of limestone and each is slightly different. The wall was built over a long time. It probably took several decades. The main gate is once again on the south side. The gate was kind of paved. There are stele in the front gate and they do not appear at all the gates. Part of the defense was s ditch, a wood fence at the crossing points, and another wall
