The search for the biblical Philistines, one of ancient Israel's most storied enemies, has long intrigued both scholars and the public. Archaeological and textual evidence examined in their broader eastern Mediterranean context reveals that the Philistines, together with other related groups of 'Sea Peoples' well-known from biblical and extrabiblical texts, played a transformative role in the development of new ethnic groups and polities that emerged from the ruins of the Late Bronze Age empires. The essays in this book, representing recent research in the fields of archaeology, Bible, and history, reassess the origins, identity, material culture, and impact of the Philistines and other Sea Peoples on the Iron Age cultures and peoples of the eastern Mediterranean.Table of ContentsWhen the Past Was New: Moshe Dothan (1919-1999), an Appreciation by Neil Asher Silberman ix Acknowledgments xv Abbreviations xvii Introduction 1.
