BBC interview

Yesterday (to be continued tomorrow as well), I was interviewed by BBC documentaries, for a program on bible and archaeology that will deal with the biblical and archaeological correlates relating to the David and Goliath story. The program (which may yet develop into a series) was hosted by Dr. Francesca Stavrakopoulou, a biblical scholar from Exeter University, who in fact participated in the excavations at Tell es-Safi/Gath three years ago. We “trepsed” around the site all morning and discussed various issues relating to this topic, and I believe we covered the topic quite nicely.

Here are some pictures of Francesca and myself talking while the cameras are rolling.

Here we are discussing issues overlooking the Elah Valley, just to the north of Area A.

Here we are in Louise’s area in Area A, and I am talking about the complete bowl, part of a foundation deposit, that had just been removed.
