EL, (Eddie Larry), well you are most probably correct, all you have to do is inquire about the archaeological record for these cities!
I am sure our current and past experts in this field of endeavour, have posted their results, and while I am not 100% sure, I do feel they would have walls around these cities at the times specified!
But that is another question for another time!
