The remains of an ancient gate have pinpointed the location of the biblical city Sha'arayim, say archaeologists working in Israel.

In the Bible young David is described as battling Goliath in the Elah Valley near Sha'arayim. The fortified gate at the Elah Fortress-the second to be found at the site-proves the existence of Sha'arayim, which means "two gates" in Hebrew, said Hebrew University archaeologist Yosef Garfinkel.

In October, Garfinkel revealed a 3,000-year-old pottery shard with text believed to be Hebrew-then hailed by some as the most important archaeological discovery in Israel since the Dead Sea Scrolls. see: Oldest Possibly Hebrew Inscription Found outside Jerusalem
