Video clip on the exhibition on Philistine Gath at the BIU library (and possible exhibit abroad?)

As mentioned before, there is a small exhibition currently being displayed in the entrance hall of the main library of Bar-Ilan University, entitled “The Rise and Fall of Philistine Gath” in which finds from the excavations at the site are displayed and through this, the fascinating culture of the Philistines is explained. The exhibition has been in place for a few weeks, and will be open to the public until December 10th, 2013 (we were give a few extra weeks then originally planned).

If you want to see the exhibit – now’s the time to go. But if you can’t, here is a short clip of the exhibit, filmed by Safi staff member Maria/Masha, which gives a nice idea of what it looks like.

Take a look.

BTW – we are currently looking into the possibility of sending a similar exhibition on a tour abroad to various interested institutions. If any of you are interested in hosting this exhibition in their institution – do get in touch with me – and we can see if this can be arranged.
