There’s a new study on the origins of the Philistines, based on the genes of the ancient inhabitants of Ashkelon Science Advances (pdf)

There are a lot of topics related to this forum there - from genetics to Biblical history.

The summary is that a European group moved into Ashkelon around the start of the Iron Age, but within a couple of hundred years their genetic legacy was essentially lost.
