Although not directly related to Gath of the Philistines (except save for the Aegean connections of the Philistines), see here this awesome clip of people actually “BULL LEAPING” – as the Minoans are depicted.
So much for those who doubted whether this was possible.
Here is a wall painting from Knossos depicting a bull leaping scene.
And so much for the attempts to recreate how this was done
Thanks to Louise Hitchcock for pointing this out!
