Houses When the Crusaders occupied Jerusalem, it is likely that few buildings in the city were destroyed; the houses that had been in use under Muslim rule were occupied by the new settlers. According to Fulcher of Chartres: After this great slaughter they [the Crusaders] entered the houses of the citizens, seizing whatever they found there. This was done in such a way that whoever first entered a house, whether he was rich or poor, was not challenged by any other Frank. He was to occupy or own the house or palace and whatever he found in it as if it were entirely his own.
According to the maps, the remainder of the area was divided up into other quarters. Virtually no remains appear to have survived in this area. This is partly due to the fact that during the construction of the walls of the Ottoman city the ruins were used to supply building stone, but the quarter may perhaps have never been as densely built up as was the older part of the city. The only apparently Frankish finds to date consist of the round tower in the north-west (Frankel 1987:256–61, Plates 31a, b, 32a), some walls to its south which may be part of the auberge or remains of the leper hospital of St Lazar, a bathhouse recently discovered and partly excavated (Stern forthcoming) and a building situated about 50 m from the sea and 210 m north of the Ottoman wall.
Unlike in Jerusalem it was within the city walls, but in the most distant part of the city. To its south the Hospitallers had a second quarter. The Templars had a quarter in the south-western corner. According to the maps, the remainder of the area was divided up into other quarters. Virtually no remains appear to have survived in this area. This is partly due to the fact that during the construction of the walls of the Ottoman city the ruins were used to supply building stone, but the quarter may perhaps have never been as densely built up as was the older part of the city.
