Archaeologist in terror hotel fight ARCHAEOLOGY NEWSFLASH 476

Archaeologist Ron Wyatt had just arrived home from his
expedition. He was unwinding with a book, when I rang.
“So you’re home, too?” he asked. We’d split just two
weeks earlier. He’d gone east and I’d flown west.
“How was it?” I asked, careful of my words.
“I was there two days and two nights,” he croaked. “It
was a bit hairy. The first night five terrorists were
shot dead near our hotel. So we moved across town. The
second night nine terrorists were shot in the street near
“Were you able to use the boroscope?”
“Yes, we raced out there quick before the killers woke up
to it. But the light was too dim. Next time, when you
come, we’ll need a stronger light to see inside.”
I replaced the receiver. Thank God Ron had come through!
It was spine-chilling, this whole thing. Phone buggings,
break-ins, “spy” arrests, murder attempts and betrayals.
It had started for me when my good friend Roy Tucker held
out a copy of Life magazine.
“Look,” he shrieked, his eyes popping out like antennae.
“A MASSIVE SHIP IN THE MOUNTAINS!!! Can you believe it?
Just look! It’s as big as a battleship! What on earth can
it be?” he exclaimed. “Noah’s Ark?”
“Not Noah’s Ark,” I retorted, skeptically. “This thing
has to be a freak of nature.” (Get real! What else could
it be – at 6,300 feet altitude?)
“There IS enough water, you know,” retorted Roy. “Enough
water to put it up there. There’s eighteen times more
water below sea level than there is dry land above it.”
“Yes. And it’s well known that most of earth’s mountains
are of recent formation. If seabeds can rise and
continents sink, there’d be heaps of water for a
worldwide Flood. If all the land now above the sea were
dumped into the ocean depths, it would fill only one
eighteenth of the present volume of the oceans. Quite
enough water, don’t you think.
Anyway, I had taken my own teams to the area.
STONE “SEA ANCHORS”
On my very first trip something else had cropped up. As I
roamed the hills, I noticed a number of stone objects,
resembling ancient sea anchors.
Large stone anchors were part of the equipment of the
ships of antiquity. They were perforated at the top so
that chains or ropes could be passed through the holes.
Such anchors have been found in the Mediterranean, the
eastern Atlantic and off the coast of California.
These stones, with their flat surface area against the
water, created a drag, in turbulent water, preventing a
vessel from slipping sideways against a wave. In calmer
waters, the stones hung deep, sounding for the bottom.
They could have served as sheet anchors and been
manipulated to direct a vessel around obstructions.
The “drogue stones” up in these hills of eastern Turkey
were by far the largest ever found in the world. The
heaviest anchor stone found to date had been 1,543 lbs
(700 kg) (Honor Frost, Ancore, the Potsherd of Marine
Archaeology: On the Recording of Pierced Stones from the
But these were an average weight out of water of 8,700 lbs!
(That was the estimate of marine salvor David Fasold.) And
on average they were ten feet high by five feet wide and 18
to 24 inches thick.
So far, thirteen of these anchor stones have been found.
There may be a total of eighteen.
Two facts emerged which could be significant. Firstly,
they lay at intervals, more or less in a straight line
with the boat-shaped object. (Some of them had cable holes
intact; in others a portion of the hole remained.
Secondly, marine scientists, using computer models, were
later able to determine that the stones were the size
that would have been required by a ship of the Ark’s
And I asked myself, WHY WERE THESE GIANT SEA ANCHORS ON
THE SLOPES OF THE ARARAT MOUNTAINS – and so close to the
“It’s the Ark, Trevor, it has to be!” I exclaimed to one
of my team members. “See where these anchor stones lie?
They must have been cut loose, or dropped, as the Ark
entered the area of its final rest.”
The gradual accumulation of evidence over some 34 visits
to the site has included these finds:
* 8 ship’s anchor stones in the vicinity
* Metal nowhere in the ground around the boat-shape,
* but only inside the formation
* Inside, an organized pattern of iron at regular intervals
* Radar evidence of man-made structure (walls, cavities,
tank shapes, passage ways, side doorway, ramp, etc.)
* Regular vertical structure around the sides – crossed by
horizontal formation, to form a “lattice work”
* Petrified, laminated wood
* Fossilized rivets containing a sophisticated alloy
* 4-foot long metal rods
* Iron angle bracket
* Slag (waste product) from some type of metal production,
coming out of the boat-shape from a location which suggests
it could have been ballast.
* The structure is the correct size (both in length and breadth)
to be Noah’s Ark
* It is in the correct location (the biblical “mountains” – plural
– of Ararat)

And the answer is, of course, YES. So I’ve put this together
with some other great discoveries into a special deal of
