The Annual Meeting of the American Schools of Oriental Research was just held in Baltimore, and although I did not participate (had too many things “on my plate” and had to act mature and responsible for a change), a paper of mine was delivered in the annual session on Philistia that Jeff Chadwick (aka Akhish Melekh Gath) and I chair. Jeff was kind enough to deliver the paper in my name.
As I gave a general overview of the finds from the 2013 season which might interest those reading the blog, here is the PP presentation, and the text of the lecture as given at the meeting.
