Researchers make 'first discovery' of Philistine cemetery

They are said to be a branch of the Casluhim--an unknown people--or, according to Septuagint, of the Casmanim, which would mean "shavers of the head"

So.....the Philistine warrior Goliath was a 6ft 8 bald guy?

Fantastic! I'm going to read up on this, thanks for the links.

You should check out this lecture video if you haven't already.

Interestingly, they seem to have worshiped a Middle Eastern god, although how could you prove how or why they adopted him.

That is interesting. Of course, our old Pope hat had a strange similarity to the old Babylonian fish hat. Maybe the influence of Babylon was very great in popular culture.

If the Philistines were sea people then it makes sense that they have a fish god. Almost like Poseidon or something.

Seems like it, and this when most men were probably like 5'3 or 5.4, yes? Intimidating indeed!

Very smart to go for a projectile to the head. :)

Reminds me of that fight scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark in a way...it appealed to my funny bone.

They won't reveal the DNA because it would be too controversial when they discover Philistines were Aegean and not semitic.

Even though the word "Philistine" in the dictionary means:

The presence of Bronze Age Italians,Sardinians and Sicilians in the Aegean is a well know fact..

At this part of the video, Dr. Eric Cline points out that according to the mural left behind on Ramses III's tomb; it depicts the Sea people actually as migrants, rather than just invaders. He goes on to say they brought with them their families, domestic animals with carts. He compares their movement as more akin to the Okies in the Dust bowl (well if they were also sacking the areas they migrated to.). Rather than being a cause of the Bronze age collapse, they were a symptom of it. Perhaps brought on by upheaval from where the various groups originated.

Jovialis if you are interested in this subject i can recomend you this book, Shardana e Sardegna. I popoli del mare, gli alleati del Nordafrica e la fine dei Grandi Regni (XV-XII secolo a.C.), published in 2016..It's mainly focused on Nuragic Sardinia and the Sherden but there are other chapters dedicated to other Bronze Age Italic peoples and their possible links with the Sea Peoples..over 1000 pages!

Yes there is proof of Italian presence in the Aegean and the Levant, imported South Italian, Sicilian and Sardinian pottery is found, both imported and locally made in the Aegean and Levant, finding imported valueless rough Italian pottery is suspicious enough, but finding locally made vases definitely seals the deal, local Eastern Mediterraneans would have absolutely no reason to start producing rough Italian pottery much worse than theirs, this is further supported by the presence of Italic weapons in the Levant and Aegean, South Italian razors and the textual evidence from Egypt and Ugarit.

It is certain that there were small groups of Central Mediterraneans in the Eastern Mediterranean during the late bronze age, who probably went by names similar to those of some of the sea peoples, who coincidentally made their appearance in textual records in the Eastern Med at the same time , of course we have no conclusive proof yet but the finds of the last decades are pointing in that direction.
