Biblical giants unearthed in Golan Heights?
A recent archeological dig has unearthed more than 20 skeletons of giant proportions near the ancient ruins of Rujm el-Hiri, located in the Golan Heights. The archeologists from the University of Tel-Aviv claim that those skeletons might be older then the ruins themselves, already dating back to 5000 years ago by mainstream archeologists.

The Rujm el-Hiri site which consists of an estimated 40,000 tons of uncut black volcanic basalt field stones piled and wedged into between five and nine concentric rings has always been a site of interest to biblical archeology because of its mention in the Bible.

It is said in the Bible (Numbers, 21, 33-35), that Og, King of Bashan, which is the area of Golan and further easteard. Og and his mighty army was slained by Moses and he is said to have been the last of the Rephaim, a synonym word in Hebrew for giants.

Could this be the resting ground of these mythical giants the Bible tells us about?
