In this video we introduce Dr. Aren Maeir and we launch our first episode of a series on the Philistines!

In this presentation we explore the history of archaeology surrounding the Philistines, what has changed, what we have discovered and what we still don't know.

The Philistines have been a people surrounded by mythology / misconceptions / misunderstanding and would be known to many as simply the rivals of the ancient Israelite's as recorded by a variety of battles and stories in the Old Testament.

But, there is so much more than that. In this series we explore their writings, language, culture, societal structure, religion, foreign policy, archaeological findings, DNA, conflicts, trade and so much more!

In this episode we go over who the Philistines were, where did they come from and where did they go?
