Experts Found Skull Of Goliath In The Valley Of Elah Proves Bible Story Is True


A team of famous archaeologists and biblical scholars have confirmed an enormous skull that was unearthed west of Jerusalem is that of Goliath. They also say the stone embedded in its forehead came from David’s slingshot!

The German archaeologist, Dr. Richard Martin, says the find proves that the battle between David and Goliath occurred just the way the Bible described it.


“I was convinced before that this was the skull of the 10-foot Palestine giant described in the Bible,” Dr. Martin said in Jerusalem.



According to the Bible, Goliath stood around three meters tall and lived in the 10th century BC in the ancient city of Gath, which is now modern day Tell es-Safi.

It is one of the most enduring battles in history: the story of a simple shepherd boy who slays a Philistine giant and goes on to become king.


Dr. Martin and his assistants found the gigantic skull during a routine archaeological survey in the Valley of Elah, the location of the battle between David and Goliath.

Meanwhile, Team leader and biblical archaeologist Aaron Mayer from Israel’s Bar-Ilan University says that the short of finding his bronze Armour or a skull with a pebble-sized hole, historians may never prove that Goliath ever existed.

“The question is how much was the story exaggerated,” he said. “They haven’t found David and they haven’t found his Armour and they haven’t found Goliath or his head or anything of the sort.”
