The Philistines and Other 'Sea Peoples'
Additional Archaeological Studies



[see also:  Philistines: general bibliography;  Philistines: specific cities]


Two preliminary notes
1.  While the general bibliography on the Philistines includes titles that discuss both textual and archaeological data, the present bibliography is more explicitly archaeological in orientation. A neat distinction between the two bibliographies is not possible; they are separated for practical reasons of length.
2.  For the most part, titles concerning the Philistines in the Iron II period are not included.

The present bibliography is divided into three sections as follows:
