Did Sodom and Gomorrah exist? These two cities, were destroyed by brimstone and fire (Genesis 19:24-25).

The historical existence of Sodom and Gomorrah is still in dispute by archaeologists. However, The Bible indicates they were located near the Dead Sea.
Possible candidate for Sodom or Gomorrah are the sites discovered or visited by Walter E. Rast and R. Thomas Schaub in 1973, including Bab edh-Dhra, which was originally excavated in 1965 by archaeologist Paul Lapp near the Dead Sea.
Also, what was quite interesting is that wide-spread burn marks, traces of sulfur are both still clearly visible throughout both sites, with the remains of walls and towers that had obviously collapsed in some violent manner during the early Bronze Age
