Article on EB fortification of Tell es-Safi/Gath is out!

The Tell es-Safi/Gath Archaeological Project Official (and Unofficial) Weblog

Although I have not yet received the official PDF, the newest issue of PEQ (148/1 [2016]) with an article on the EB fortifications at Tell es-Safi/Gath is out (or so at least the PEF website claims so).

The full title is: Shai, I., Chadwick, J. R., Welch, E., Katz, J., Greenfield, H., and Maeir, A. M.
2016 The Early Bronze Age Fortifications at Tell es-Safi/Gath, Israel. Palestine Exploration Quarterly 148(1): 42–58.

I’ve posted a page-proof version of the article on – and as soon as the finished version is out – I’ll send it out as well.

In this paper, we discuss the fortifications of the site during the EB, based on the finds from different areas (E, F and P) and in comparison to what Bliss and Macalister reported from their earlier excavations.

Check it out!
