Scott Wolter gets a call from a man who has a mysterious stone on his property. He’s convinced that it’s the “Stone of Destiny”–the stone that Jacob from the Bible rested his head on, in Season 2, Episode 1, “Ark of the Covenant.”
In “America Unearthed,” host Scott Wolter uses hard science and intuitive theories to explain the most mysterious artifacts and sites in America.
I found this quite interesting, as I have never heard of this theory before. I had been pretty well convinced it was and is at the Coptic church in Axum, Ethiopa.
The Church of Our Lady Mary of Zion (Amharic: ርዕሰ አድባራት ቅድስተ ቅዱሳን ድንግል ማሪያም ፅዮን Re-ese Adbarat Kidiste Kidusan Dingel Maryam Ts’iyon) is an Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church in Ethiopia. It is claimed to contain the Ark of the Covenant. It is located in the town of Axum, Tigray. The original church is believed to have been built during the reign of Ezana the first Christian ruler of the Kingdom of Axum (Present-day Eritrea and Ethiopia), during the 4th century AD, and has been rebuilt several times since then.
