Cave entrance to the archaeological dig site

Cave entrance to the archaeological dig site

As I understand it, the people who lived in Tel Maresha, would start to build their houses above ground, by initially starting to dig out a cave on the site of their intended home, and using the stone material that they harvested from their cave to build their new home. When complete, the structure would have both above ground rooms and the below ground cave. Sometimes the caves would become quite extensive.
