In this episode Dr. Aren Maeir takes us back into the world of the Philistines to discuss what language that they may have spoke.
He discusses the possibility of them speaking a Greek dialect and writing in an Aegean script and how this was not only very possible but also not uncommon.
And did their language or writing change over time?
