Turkey: A group of archaeologists working on Mount Ararat have discovered what they are almost certain is the remains of Noah´s ark at an altitude of 4000m. They now plan to seek UNESCO World Heritage Listing while it is investigated.
A structure with wooden beams separated into a number of compartments has been found. Carbon dating puts its age at 4,800 years, which is consistent with the Biblical flood record. No settlement has been found above 3,500m in the area.
"It´s not 100 per cent that it is Noah´s Ark but we think it is 99.9 per cent that this is it," said Noah´s Ark Ministries International documentary film maker Yeung Wing-cheung.
