Certainly guys I will put my 2c in. Ive had a bit of a hobby on the Grail Arthur and Ark thing for the last 20 years or more.
Really don't know how many books ive read and conventions looked at on this subject, I have looked at all the theories and such.
I am pretty much without a doubt convinced that "Axum" Ethiopia is the place.
The historical links are very pronounced and like mentioned in the post above there is evidence from both biblical, and other historical records of
its movement to Ethiopia during Sheba's time and her sons.
The current tribes of Ethiopians of some heritages are without a doubt one of the lost tribes of Israel. In fact you could state that many Ethiopians
of these tribes are more of "gods Chosen People" than many fighting in the middle east now for a "homeland" who are more Russian Gypsy than any
real long lasting genetic heritage to the first Jewish people.
They have stayed since biblical times in this area, and still practice many of the old school newish customs incorporated into their modern day
The "newish" people in Israel are generally such a mix from their travels and integration and mixing, with other nations around the world, it makes
me laugh that that identity is soo strong. Maybe thats why they act with such zealousness about the homeland, as they know deep down their actual
heritage does not lead them to one place, but to all countries of the earth, like a homeless person no family, he will overcompensate on territory of
his cardboard box.
Near Axum is archaeological evidence of ancient newish rites, being carried out on a lakes island.
These rites were the ones described in the bible to be done around the Ark and its own Covering "tent" or temple.
These archaeological remains have been confidently dated to the time of the Sheba and her Sons.
Basically Jewish people as described in the Bible, who had control of the Ark were definitely very near to a church where today the Ark is said to be
kept. They definitely did construct things and did certain acts that would have only been associated with the presence in their religious teachings to
take place around the Ark.
The Ark i am discussing Is the Ark of Moses or the Covenant with the two stone tablets(for no confusion).
The Modern version of the Ethiopian Church includes ceremonies that mean all practitioners where small mini "arks" representations on their forehead
strapped over their third eye.
Also many processions take place from various church's where a "fake"ark is displayed and put on a float for a parade and festival. However the
Fake ark is always known and described as that, the same as a Cross carried a priest is not a actual cross but representative of one.
However the "Ark2 that is in the Church at Akum is never ever displayed or viewed. It is unlike all the others understood and stated to be the true
The guardian system of father and son has been proven to exist for at least 750 years from records now and is stated to be from the time of Sheba's
son Malachi, when he left the Ark in safe Keeping here.
It was brought there due to the instability of the Jewish state of the time and Jerusalem, the aim of the Jewish state is not soo much to Build the
new temple but to place the Ark there too.
In fact many people are very unaware of the Ethiopian History, it was once and in Sheba's time known as the "the Bread Basket of Africa" and was of
massive importance, wealth and influence. It certainly held one of the major African Civilizations for much of Biblical History due to its Fertile
Lands "at the time though!"
There is a Tragedy of modern knowledge being lost due to the problems since the Assyrians/Italian excursions into Ethiopia in the last century. Many
Many many ancient biblical books, libraries documents are being lost. A real center of unabridged unadulterated teaching and record keeping in Ancient
biblical Texts has taken place here for thousands of years. with the famines and current rebel insurgency, Islamic problems and Eritrea dispute this
truly glorious and amazing place of the world is loosing its knowledge and secrets.
However they do seem to still have the Ark. As said earlier guys I have read about 100 books on this subject, researched for many many many years of
my life, have been there, checked this out, that out and the magority of evidence (actual real archaeological evidence as mentioned) is here and here
A couple more facts you might not know that sort of back this up though vaguely.
David of Bible fame, one of his descendants in bloodline was the Last emperor of Ethiopia Hailee Salassie (the link with ancient Biblical times is
strong you see!)
If you follow the Nile from Egypt you get to Ethiopia eventually, (this is how it was moved apparently)
