In the Valley of Elah
Recent discoveries from Khirbet Qeiyafa

During the summer of 2008, Professor Yosef Garfinkel of the Hebrew University started a new excavation at Khirbet Qeiyafa, located in the Elah Valley southwest of Jerusalem. Mentioned in the Bible as the place where the young shepherd David met the Philistine warrior Goliath in combat, the Elah Valley has yielded evidence of the kingdom of Israel established by King David at the beginning of Iron Age II (c. 1000 B.C.). BAR managing editor Dorothy D. Resig takes us on a visual tour of Khirbet Qeiyafa and discusses some of Professor Garfinkel’s most recent discoveries.
