Nuh’un Gemisi – by Dr Allen Roberts
In 1960 an article was published in Australia’s PIX magazine entitled ‘Is this Noah’s Ark?” (see footnote 1). The article described how an American team had journeyed to the mountains of Eastern Turkey to investigate a large mud-covered boat-shaped formation located near the border of Iran. It sat on the mud of a broad valley known by the locals as Akyayla which means ‘white high plateau’. It was at an altitude of several thousand feet above sea level and, according to information in the article, its dimensions were similar to those of the ark as set down in the Old Testament.
The article described how the investigation team had exploded sections of the formation with dynamite to see if there were any wood inside. The absence of such wood apparently confirmed their opinion that this was not the ark but some sort of natural formation.
As a young historian with a deep interest in biblical history and archaeology, my curiosity was stirred. On the basis of this article, I felt that the site warranted further investigation and developed a secret desire to go there one day and check it personally.
Little did I realise that across the Pacific in the United States of America, another young man, about my age, had read that same article published in his country by LIFE Magazine.
That man was Ron Wyatt. He too had a profound interest in biblical archaeology, and he too cherished a desire to investigate the site for himself.
