Wyatt Archaelogical Research on Biblical Places and Aritifacts

Ronald Eldon Wyatt (2 Jun 1933 – August 4, 1999) was an adventurer and former nurse anesthetist noted for advocating the Durupınar site as the site of Noah's Ark, among other Bible-related pseudoarchaeology. His claims were dismissed by scientists, historians, biblical scholars, and by leaders in his own Seventh-day Adventist Church, but his work continued to have a following among some fundamentalists and evangelical Christians.

By the time of his death on August 4, 1999, his claimed discoveries included:

  1. Noah's Ark (the Durupınar site, located approximately 18 miles (29 km) south of Mount Ararat)[2]
  2. Anchor stones (or drogue stones) used by Noah on the Ark[3]
  3. The post-flood house, grave markers and tombs of Noah and his wife[4]
  4. The location of Sodom and Gomorrah and the other Cities of the Plain: Zoar, Zeboim and Admah[5]
  5. Sulfur/brimstone balls from the ashen remains of Sodom and Gomorrah[6]
  6. The area of Djoser's pyramid complex believed to be the remains of Joseph's grain distribution bins used during the 7 year famine[7]
  7. The Tower of Babel site (in southern Turkey)[8]
  8. How the Egyptians may have built the pyramids[9]
  9. The site of the Israelites' crossing of the Red Sea (located in the Gulf of Aqaba)[10]
  10. Chariot wheels and other relics of the army of Pharaoh at the bottom of the Red Sea
  11. The site of the biblical Mt. Sinai (in Saudi Arabia at Jabal al Lawz)[11]
  12. A chamber at the end of a maze of tunnels under Jerusalem containing artifacts from Solomon's Temple (including the Ark of the Covenant)[12]
  13. The site of the Crucifixion of Jesus
  14. Christ's blood, dripped onto the Mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant beneath the Crucifixion site
  15. Burial pots off the coast of Ashkelon[13]
