    Evidence for the Queen of Sheba Found In Ethiopia?

    Almost 3,000 years ago, the ruler of Sheba, which spanned modern-day Ethiopia and Yemen, arrived in Jerusalem with vast quantities of gold to give to King Solomon. Now an enormous ancient goldmine, together with the ruins of a temple and the site of a battlefield, have been discovered in her former territory.
    Louise Schofield, an archaeologist and former British Museum curator, who headed the excavation on the high Gheralta plateau in northern Ethiopia, said: "One of the things I've always loved about archaeology is the way it can tie up with legends and myths. The fact that we might have the Queen of Sheba's mines is extraordinary."

    Amazing story. It seems so rare for them to find a site that hasn't already been plundered. Great find. Neat:

    ""The idea that the ruins of Sheba's empire will once more bring life to the villages around Maikado is truly poetic and appropriate. Making the past relevant to the present is exactly what archaeologists should be doing. "

    I think that is an awesome discovery. Think Georgio was mentioning something about Solomon and Sheba on a MAGIC Carpet Ride. Some Hidden Technology that we don't understand. As we know carpets do not fly. So it had to be some sort of alien craft or some sort of alien energy that we just cannot comprehend to make this carpet have flight. Not to mention to be able to carry Solomon and Sheba on top of it. <<<<<said like Georgio.

    The Georgio bit with Solomon was preposterous even for Giorgio.

    Childress is the guy that gets me. Especially when he starts talking about ancient aliens flying all around the planet. He really went bonkers with the Greek Gods and their Weapons. Both those guys got the Word Technology down pat. Specially Georgio he throws that Accent in on that hard like.

    Although little is known about her, the queen's image inspired medieval Christian mystical works in which she embodied divine wisdom, as well as Turkish and Persian paintings, Handel's oratorio Solomon, and Hollywood films. Her story is still told across Africa and Arabia, and the Ethiopian tales are immortalised in the holy book the Kebra Nagast.
