Archaeology provides us with material evidence of past times, relating to ancient peoples and cultures. But it does not only provide us information about “big events” – such as conquests, migrations, destructions, etc. – but also of the daily life of people in antiquity.
This includes mundane things such as what food people ate and how they prepared their food. In this clip we speak about evidence (from the site of Tell es-Safi/Gath) of what the Israelites and Philistines ate and how they prepared their food, and how the differences between food related aspects in these cultures can assist us in understanding these, and other, ancient cultures.
