Archaeologists on a two-decade-long mission have discovered the gate and the fortifications of one of the most coveted ancient Biblical cities – Philistine Gath, located in the Judean foothills. The city was also home to Goliath.
The gate to the city, where the biblical giant warrior Goliath, defeated by young David, the future king of Israel, came from, was enormous.

It is among the largest found to date in digs of this kind, says Professor Aren Maeir, of the Martin Department of Land, Israel Studies and Archaeology at the Bar-Ilan University. The finding, he says, is evidence of the city’s political influence in the 10th - 9th centuries BCE, during the ‘United Kingdom’ of Israel and the reign of King Ahab of Israel.

The Biblical city is located in the Judean foothills, between Jerusalem and Ashkelon, in the Tel Zafit national park, where Maeir and his team’s excavations have been ongoing for some time. Their long-term aim is to study the way of life and history of the city.
