Mystery Explored: Search for King David
Expedition Dates: Novmber 6 - 17, 2006


In the Old Testament, King David is the shepherd poet who, after slaying the giant Goliath, goes on to become the first king of a united Israel. But was he a real historical figure, or a mythological King? According to some scientists, the archaeological evidence appears to call the story into question; others claim they have already found the evidence to prove it’s true. To find out, I examined an ancient basalt slab inscribed with David’s name, recreated his famous fight with Goliath, and descended through a ‘secret’ waterway into the heart of Jerusalem.
