Just inside the inner town wall in bD8II, excavators discovered a grave chamber. Inside this grave chamber, with its partly destroyed roof, were 87 fragmentary clay tablets that fell down when the private house above was destroyed. Tablets from this archive date to the 8th and 7th centuries BC. Several of the texts are purchase documents, mostly of people.
