Archaeologists Excavate Biblical Giant Goliath’s Hometown –

Archeology has always fascinated me.  Whenever I thought of being an archeologist (a passing notion from my youth) I imagined working on great biblical sites and making incredible discoveries.  The sad reality is that much more of the time is spent working patiently on sweeping aside dirt and sand to find old pottery and building foundations.  Every once in awhile, however, an incredible discovery is made,  It looks like this discovery  of the city of Gath was one of those.

You can read about David and Goliath at: 1 Samuel 17

You can read about the destruction of Gath in a single verse: 2 Kings 12:17
