For the armchair archaeologist and student of biblical history, this illustrated study examines current archaeological evidence concerning Israel's neighbors, the Philistines. Examining how this evidence illuminates the biblical world of Joshua, the work contains scholarly references to point the reader toward more detailed sources. Much of the information included in the book is in large part due to the current excavations at Tel Miqne-Ekron, 30 miles west of Jerusalem. A more complete picture of who the Philistines were is becoming available as a result of the findings and observations from these sites, and the information has revolutionized understanding of the Philistines by increasing the knowledge of these people and their negative historical portrayal in the Old Testament.
