      Summary:
      Tell Es-Safi/Gath is one of the largest pre-classical sites in the
      ancient Levant, continuously settled from the Protohis- toric periods
      until Modern times and is identified as ancient Canaanite and
      Philistine Gath (known from the el Amarna letters, Assyrian texts, and
      the Bible), Medieval Blanche Garde, and the modern Palestinian village
      of Tell es-Safi. Archaeologically, the site is of noteworthy
      importance in the study of the Bronze and Iron Age of the Levant, and
      in particular in relationship to the Canaanite, Philistine and
      Israelite cultures.

      Since 1996, a long-term international project has been studying the
      cultural and environmental history of the site and its surroundings.
      The volume, edited by Aren Maeir, is the first of a planned series of
      final reports on the project and deals primarily with the results of
      the 1996 through 2005 seasons. Discussions include a general overview
      of the project up to 2010, and studies on the geography and the
      environment, the written sources relating to the differ- ent periods,
      the history of research, the architecture and stratigraphy of the
      various excavation areas, and assorted finds of various classes (such
      as pottery, stone and bone objects, glyptic, inscriptions, and ancient
      fauna and flora). In addition, there are studies on pottery
      provenience, the archaeological surface survey, ground penetrating
      radar results, data mining of pottery finds, and a general overview of
      the Early Bronze Age of the Judean Foothills (Shephelah).
