Biblical Gath of the Philistines, the hometown of the legendary Goliath according to the Bible, is located at the site of Tell es-Safi.  Excavations have revealed exciting and fascinating finds about this city and the Philistines, including the world’s earliest known siege system, an inscription mentioning names similar to Goliath, Philistine temples, and much more.

Prof. Aren Maeir is director of the excavations and will talk about the Philistines, their relations with the Israelites, and show the fascinating finds and groundbreaking methods used to uncover them
