Nice article on insights on the Philistines – mainly based on the excavations at Gath

A very nice article by Philipp Boström has appeared in the English edition of Haaretz, in which he discusses the excavations at Tell es-Safi/Gath, and new understandings (based a lot on finds from Tell es-Safi/Gath) on who the Philistines were, what the processes that were involved in their appearance, and their relationships with surrounding peoples – especially the Israelites/Judahites.

For those without access to the Haaretz site – here is a PDF: Bostrom_Haaretz article on Gath_3_16

Check it out – quite nice!

And needless to say – if you want to be a part of these and other discoveries, join the team this summer! Here’s how.
