Holy King Soloman's Mines!

Professor Says He Found Ark of the Covenant--Maybe

This is one of the wildest stories I've run across lately. It's sort of a modern version of the early European explanations of the ruins of Great Zimbabwe.

Scepticism aside, the Lemba are interesting. They do have cultural practices that have led many to convert to Islam. One theory is that there was early contact with Arab traders that introduced Islam to this group.

Now, we await the movie.

The actual Ark, that would be amazing.
