First-ever Philistine cemetery discovered. Is this Goliath’s burial site?

Archaeologists have unearthed the first Philistine cemetery ever to be discovered, bringing focus on the ancient civilization that was home to one of the Bible’s most famous villains.

Historians have always hoped to learn more about the mysterious Philistines, and the ancient cemetery finally offers insight into this historic civilization.

The Philistines are best known for Goliath, the giant who fought a young King David in battle near the Valley of Elah.

“We’ve learned about their houses, we’ve learned about what they ate and we learned about who they traded with, but now we’re seeing the people themselves.”

Some skeletons have been found wearing bracelets and earrings, while others had weapons.


Dr. Tabor Shares Three Things About The Bible.

1. The Bible is FACT.

2. The Bible is the #1 best seller of all time.

3. The Bible has been proven time and time again to be accurate by historians and archeologists.

The Bible should be where you turn for answers, not the newspaper or the TV.
