Lecture on walls of Gath at PEF conference in Haifa

As mentioned previously, this coming Sunday-Monday (Dec. 20-21, 2015), there will be a very interesting conference at Haifa University “The PEF and the Early Exploration of the Holy Land”.

As part of the conference, on Sunday, I will be presenting a paper (along with Haskel, Itzik, Jeff, Eric and Jill in absentia) on the dating of the city walls of Tell es-Safi/Gath which had been uncovered by Bliss and Macalister in 1899 – on the basis of the results of our excavations.

To give a quick summary – we show that this wall was first built in the EB, as part of the large EB city of Gath, and then subsequently reused during the MB, LB and Iron Age.

If you can make it to Haifa – do come to the meeting – it should be interesting!

Here is the full schedule of the meeting:
