Abstract (Document Summary)

Michael Sanders, a British-born publisher of classical university texts, believes the sacred golden Ark was buried after a raid on Solomon's Temple in the 10th century B.C. by one of the Egyptian kings.

The Old Testament says the Ark was built at the foot of Mount Sinai around 1250 B.C. at the command of Moses to hold the two stone tablets inscribed with the Ten Commandments.

Sanders contends that the Ark was looted by Shishak, the King of Egypt, when Solomon's Temple was plundered in about 925 B.C.
