What Is Secrets of the Lost Ark About?

For centuries, explorers have searched for the Bible’s most sacred religious artefacts. One of the most mysterious of these objects is the famed Ark of the Covenant. The gold-plated wooden chest – one of the most instrumental symbols of faith and God’s presence – was believed to house the two tablets bearing the Ten Commandments. The Ark’s exact whereabouts has long puzzled scholars. Where did it go? And why has it remained such a mystery? SECRETS OF THE LOST ARK, premiering Sunday, May 23 at 10 PM ET/PT on Science Channel, follows a team of experts using the latest science and research in search of answers.

This real-life treasure hunt will follow the clues, hidden in the most extraordinary places – from the Holy Land to the countries that surround it. Along the way, the team of researchers will examine its many unsolved mysteries. What did the Ark look like? What was its purpose? And did it actually exist at all?

The first episode takes viewers to Jerusalem, believed to be the traditional home of the Ark of the Covenant. Many prominent scholars believe the Ark lies underneath Temple Mount. But what will it take to find it? Archaeologists scour the subterranean city beneath Jerusalem in search of clues of the Ark’s location – from Zedekiah’s cave in the old city to the cisterns beneath St Anne’s church and the drainage channels from the Gihon Spring. Another theory examines the huge graveyards surrounding the city, as the Ark may have been hidden there from the invaders. What secrets will they discover?

Each episode will look at the latest evidence as well as the many legends and rumors swirling around about its location. Could the Ark have been stolen by the Roman Legions and brought back to their capital? Or was it taken for safe keepings and hidden in a cave? Or could the Ark have been transported to Ireland, according to Celtic folklore? The experts are looking into every clue and will leave no stone unturned.
