Professor Tudor Parfitt, a real-life British Indiana Jones, has made the biggest discovery of the last 3,000 years -- what became of the fabled Ark of the Covenant. This is the amazing story of his quest. This is the real-life account of Professor Tudor Parfitt's remarkable disco...very -- of the lost Ark of the Covenant that disappeared from the Temple of Jerusalem centuries ago. The holiest object in the world, the Ark of the Old Testament contains the tablets of law sacred to Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Scholar, orientalist and adventurer, Parfitt embarked on an incredible journey to discover where the Ark is hidden, and, when he reveals his discovery, history books will be rewritten forever. Parfitt's quest took him on an incredible detective trail across the Middle East and Africa, following the unknown journey that the guardians of the lost Ark took with their precious cargo centuries ago. His search led him through ancient documents and codes, and even the complexities of modern genetic science, for the clues to take him closer to the fabled Ark. But some people didn't want the Ark to be found.In the wilder reaches of the Yemen he narrowly escaped being kidnapped by Islamist fugitives. In Africa he was shot at, ambushed and arrested. Amongst crossing paths with a motley crowd of mystics, holy men, charlatans and politicians, he encountered a strange tribe in the mysterious lands of the Limpopo River who claimed that they knew the Ark's final resting place. When Parfitt finally set eyes on the Ark, it wasn't at all where he expected. This is the incredible story of his quest.
