Scientists Pinpoint Oldest Recorded Solar Eclipse, and It’s Mentioned in Joshua’s Biblical Battle

Researchers from Cambridge University have reportedly pinpointed the oldest solar eclipse ever recorded, dating back to 30 October 1207 B.C., which is also mentioned in the Bible in the book of Joshua.

“Using a combination of the biblical text and an ancient Egyptian text, the researchers were then able to refine the dates of the Egyptian pharaohs, in particular the dates of the reign of Ramesses the Great,” the University of Cambridge said on Monday, adding that the results have been published in the Royal Astronomical Society journal Astronomy & Geophysics.
