ON THE COVER: A Philistine warrior wearing the familiar “feather” headdress of his people introduces this issue’s feature article, “What We Know About the Philistines,” by Trude Dothan. The warrior is a detail from a 12th century B.C. relief on a wall of the mortuary temple of Ramesses III at Medinet Habu in Egypt.
