Short video clip describing the evidence for the earthquake in Area F

Here is a short video clip of yours truly describing the evidence for the mid-8th century BCE earthquake destruction in Area F at Tell es-Safi/Gath, and its possible connection to the earthquake mentioned in Amos 1:1 (see earlier discussion of this here).
Note that the clip was taken with a HD video camera (thanks to Stefan Drueeke, one of our team members this year), so it is possible to view this in HD. The clip was taken at the end of the 2010 season.

  3. Hi Aren — question: obviously such a massive earthquake would have shaken up the whole area — why haven’t we seen walls like this all over the tel? Was it possibly a poorly designed wall and it could take the shock waves where others did?

      Jay,
      There is evidence of the earthquake in other parts of the tell, but it is not as explicit and visually clear cut as in the example discussed in the video
