Clip with view from upper to lower city

Here is a short clip with view of lower city of Tell es-Safi/Gath, from the northern side of the upper city, looking north towards Areas K and D (including the newly discovered gate area) in the lower city. Note the substantial topographic difference between the two parts of the site and that the lower city is only settled in the Iron I and Iron II. You really can get a feeling of the large size of the city during the Iron Age – when Philistine Gath was probably the largest city in the Land of Israel.
