      Killebrew wrote a nice chapter about the Philistines in her book.  She cited Drews and Dothan for some of her text (see bibliography). 
       
      The horned altar described in the Bible and found at Israeli and Philistine Iron Age sites was used as early as Minoan times at Santorini and later amongst the Greek Islands (Crete and Cyprus are also Greek speaking islands).  This type of altar did not originate in Egypt, Sinai, or Arabia. 
       
      Yadin wrote an essay about the tribe of Dan as staying in a place where they had ships (Judges 5:17).  They eventually settled at Tel Dan.  This is also evidence for the Sea Peoples displacing those living along the coast.  A Mycenaean grave full of Mycenaean pottery was found at Tel Dan.   Could this be evidence of a Sea People's raiding party, or of a trading connection?  The pottery is in the museum adjacent to the Tel Dan national park.      
       
      Stager found Canaanite pottery at Ashkelon and Philistine pottery immediately above it as evidence for a change in culture.  Merneptah conquered Ashkelon.  The Philistines settled there sometime later.

      What do you think of Liverani's treatment of the Philistine Problem in Israel's History or Killebrew's treatment in Biblical Peoples and Ethnicity?

A comprehensive book about this subject is: THE END OF THE BRONZE AGE, by Robert Drews, Princeton, 1993. This might be a good place to start. I have it in paperback form with a 17 page bibliography on the back pages. The coastal cities of Crete were destroyed, the Greek city Mycenae was destroyed, etc.
