Goliath's skeleton? No.

SNOPES: Is This 'Goliath Skeleton' Real? Some of the images in a collage purporting to show the discovery of a "Goliath skeleton" date back to a 1993 tabloid article. I've seen such images over the years and have posted on them occasionally. (See the links here and the "not so much" link here.) Snopes gives a detailed account of the origins of one group of images which has been circulating lately.

I know of no credible reports of the excavation of skeletons of giants. Big guys maybe, but no giants.
