Last night, I gave a lecture on evidence of cult and worship at Philistine Gath to a class of the University of Holy Land, which took place in the Rothberg School of the Hebrew University on Mt. Scopus. In the lecture, I surveyed some of the evidence for cultic practices at Philistine Gath.
Following the lecture, there was a question and answer period and I was asked if the stratigraphic chart which I had showed in the lecture has been published. I promised to post it on the blog, so here it is.
Do keep in mind that this stratigraphic chart is based on our current understanding of the remains, and may yet change as we further analyze the finds, and needless to say, based on finds in future seasons.
Also, it does not have all the finds from all the areas throughout the tell, but it does give a rather robust picture of what we know and it can give a nice idea of the various archaeological phases that we have uncovered in our work on the tell since 1996.
