Faerman, M., Boaretto, E., Uziel, J., Maeir, A. M., and Smith, P. 2011 “…In Their Lives, and in Their Death…”: A Preliminary Study of an Iron Age Burial Cave at Tell es-Safi, Israel. Zeitschrift des deutschen Palästina Vereins 127(1): 29–48.
… the recent excavation of an Iron Age burial cave in the
immediate vicinity of Tell es˙-S˙a¯fı¯ / Gath is noteworthy. The recovery of the skeletal remains of over 70 individuals from this burial, which dates to the late Iron Age I / Iron Age II, now provides the first large skeletal sample that can be reliably attributed to a population associated with the Philistine culture. This paper is an initial report on the finds from this tomb, with particular focus on the material and skeletal remains recovered during excavations of this burial cave in the summer of 2006.
Thanks again, Aren!
