In these examples the piers are of stacked mudbrick or rubble, which Neve thinks was held together by large wooden beams (between 42 and 50 cm in size) that were placed both vertically and horizontally.

According to Nelson the timbers were removed for use in the next section, but sometimes they were left in place, because they had become stuck in the wall. When the palace burned these timbers left impressions, and the mortar between the pillars left a crumbly slag-like fill that excavators thought they recognised as chases of a timber framework. Dörpfeld originally recognised these traces at Tiryns in the wall construction of room XLIII, although he, as others who followed him, did not understand them (Müller 1930: 180–2).

It seems certain that a similar process occurred at Mycenae, and likely at other citadel centres where such evidence is no longer preserved (Wace 1921–1923: 181–6, 203–4; 1949: 81; Kilian 1987c), but that is not to say that developments were uniform. 1a). 2b), and this is followed by a larger complex following a similar plan in IIIB (Catling 1974–1975: 12–5; 1975–1976: 13–15; 1976; Barber 1992). This seems a natural evolution towards the formalisation of the plan that Hiesel named the ‘corridor type house’, but at present it is unclear how widespread this development was, particularly as Hiesel’s classification and Darcque’s analysis indicate that there was widespread variation in vernacular plan throughout the Mycenaean period (Hiesel 1990: 111–44, 240–50; Darcque 2005: 341–55).
