Gath “Jerusalema Challenge”!

So the secret is now officially out!

During the 2021 season, the Tell es-Safi/Gath Archaeological Project team carried out the “Jerusalema Challenge” – dancing the world-wide smash hit song and dance – JERUSALEMA!

As far as I know, this is the first time an archaeological team takes on the challenge! (but we’re used to leading the pack…:-)

We filmed it on several occasions – and locations – during the season, as the team was carrying out various dig-related activities. Notice that the video includes clips shot from the ground, and from the air – using two different drones (utilizing regular and multi-spectral imaging).

As you can see, it was a lot of fun – even if some of us (including me…) are not the most “seasoned” dancers…:-)

Note the credits at the end of the clip for all those who contributed!

    Oh…I was hoping it was gonna be an announcement of something like “Hazael’s victory Stele finally discovered at Gath” or some discovery like that. :(
