A giant discovery 

I suppose this is why people go into archeology:
Archaeologists digging at the purported biblical home of Goliath have unearthed a shard of pottery bearing an inscription of the Philistine's name, a find they claim lends historical credence to the Bible's tale of David's battle with the giant...

The shard dates back to around 950 B.C., within 70 years of when biblical chronology asserts David squared off against Goliath, making it the oldest Philistine inscription ever found, the archaeologists said.

Proof, at least that Philistine's named people "Goliath."

I always thought people went into archaeology so they could work in the nude.
