Podcast on Tell es-Safi/Gath excavation

A brief report about the Tell es-Safi/Gath excavation has been posted on the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Company) here. A transcript is included for those who prefer to read.

Prof. Aren Maer has posted a great photo of the tell from ground level.

Check the web site here for a hi-res photo. Gath is the town named as the home of Goliath in the Bible.

Then a champion came out from the armies of the Philistines named Goliath, from Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. (1 Samuel 17:4 NAU)

I wrote this post yesterday and waited till today to post it. Others have called attention to the podcast since that time.
