Most Mysterious Archaeological Discoveries In History

The Ark of The Covenant

13. The Ark of The Covenant

This ancient artifact is so mysterious, that Steven Spielberg made a blockbuster movie on it! The Ark of The Covenant is an apparent gold-covered wood chest that contains the tablet that has the mighty 10 commandments written on them.

According to the Bible, the Ark had magical powers that could part the Jordan river and helped the Israelites cross it to escape persecution. This chest has been described in the Bible and is the most sought-after religious object ever. 
Unfortunately, despite many efforts, the ark has still not been found. We still don’t know if it was destroyed, captured, or hidden.
