Summary: History of the “Ark of the Covenant” from Atlantis to the recovery of the Ark by12th century crusaders–and re-discoveries beyond?
Within the vast vault of books on alternative views of history, there must be one or two which makes less sense than OPENING THE ARK OF THE COVENANT. Yes, this is a slam. But do not assume the book has no value. Quite the contrary.
X thousands years ago (40,000 according to the authors), in a land before Atlantis called Lemuria, human culture got its start. The Lemurians joined with Cromagnon man to develop a hybrid culture. That culture in turn lead to Atlantis. Scientist-priest in Atlantis developed a crystal technology that resulted in a machine which eventually became known as the Ark of the Covenant. The rest is history. Lots of it. So much of it that it condenses into a Slurpee syrup of fact-fiction ideal for the next Indiana Jones adventure or some Dan Brown innocent to go off to the Bavarian Alps in search of the Welselsburg Stone.
