Show Notes
For this episode, I had the honor of speaking with Dr. Aren Maeir, a professor at Bar Ilan University and director of the Tell es-Safi/Gath Archaeological Project. Tell es-Safi is believed to be the site of the biblical Gath, one of the five Philistine city-states, which is mentioned many times in the Hebrew Bible. In this episode, we discuss the history of Tell es-Safi, the proposed origins of the Philistines, and how you can volunteer at the dig. You can learn more about the excavation and how to volunteer at https://gath.wordpress.com/
