Preserved in ice 13,000 feet high on Mt. Ararat in Turkey is what explorers believe to be Noah’s Ark. They found it after 4,800 years.
Noah’s Ark was said to have been designed by God himself and built by Noah and his family as a water vessel to withstand the coming worldwide flood in ancient Old Testament times. The flood killed everyone on earth except Noah, his family and pairs of every type of animal.
When modern explorers finally went inside, they discovered thick planks of wood that made up the structure of the Ark preserved in thick ice.
