    Ancient structures uncovered at Gath may explain origin of the story of Goliath

    A giant of a man may have sprouted from an equally giant-sized city, according to findings unearthed this summer. Super-sized remains of “enormous” architecture and fortifications from a new, unexpected “biblical-era” layer of the Philistine city of Gath were unearthed this summer at the ongoing Tell es-Safi/Gath Archaeological Project directed by Prof. Aren Maeir, of the Martin (Szusz) Department of Land of Israel Studies and Archaeology.  News of the findings was reported by Haaretz, The Times of Israel, The Jerusaem Post, The Daily Star (UK), Mosaic Magazine, Sputnik News, The Jewish Voice, Watch Jerusalem, La Tercera (Chile), Noticia Cristiana, and others.
