Great new photo of Tell es-Safi/Gath in the spring!

Richard Wiskin, the team photographer for many years, just sent me a simply stunning photograph with a view of Tell es-Safi/Gath during the spring. In the photograph, looking SE towards the upper tell (from the western side of the “lower city”) there is a nice view of the white chalk cliffs (on the NW side of the upper tell) and the archaeological deposits above the cliffs, and the extraordinarily beautiful flowers and green vegetation all around.

As any of you who have been there during the summer know all so well – it looks quite different once the dry summer months arrive…

Thank you Richard!
