Ancient Philistines

This carving of an ancient Philistine warrior was found among ruins at Thebes, Egypt. it is dated to around 1200 BC around the time of Joshua. The Bible mentions the Philistines quite a bit, Goliath was a Philistine giant from the city of Gath. The hieroglyphs of Egypt mention being invaded by the "Sea Peoples" and among them were the Philistines. This actual carving is like a photograph in history, depicting an ancient Philistine soldier. This makes it important in the study of Biblical Archaeology.
