Archaeological exploration in Zedekiah’s Cave, King Solomon’s Quarries


Far beneath the Old City of Jerusalem lies Zedekiah’s Cave, a vast underground quarry thought to have been employed in the building of the temple in Jerusalem.  Forgotten for hundreds of years, the cave was rediscovered in 1854 by James Barkley, an American missionary.


Even farther down, under Zedekiah’s Cave lies another layer of caverns that tourists never see, and that very few people are even aware of.  Over 15 years ago, without speculation, Wyatt Archaeological Research quietly pointed out the area to a limited number of people. The lower cave could present a connection between the existing caverns and those thought to have originally extended farther to the north.

In September, 2011 Wyatt Archaeological Research led a team to begin excavation in those areas. Details and results should follow in the near future.

Fervent Heat - Sodom and Gomorrah
The DVD & Book

Fervent Heat - DVD and Book Set

Almost four thousand years ago, a cataclysmic event took place which literally changed the face of the earth. Approximately eight hundred square miles of the world’s most fertile and productive acreage was destroyed by the greatest and most devastating fire in earth’s recorded history. Turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes God condemned them with an overthrow, making them an example, or visual example, unto those that after should live ungodly;

Today the results of that devastating fire can plainly be seen throughout the Rift Valley of Israel and Jordan. Along the Western shores of the Dead Sea, the ashen remains of Sodom and Gomorrah bear witness of the ancient inferno which burned with FERVENT HEAT.

Join Richard Rives, president of Wyatt Archaeological Research, on an expedition through the plains of Israel and Jordan as the pages of Biblical history come alive.

In 1981 Ron Wyatt located what he believed to be the crucifixion site of Jesus Christ. He found a square depression in the surface material, into which a cross could have been placed, along with an adjoining crevice. Ron Wyatt said that the blood of Christ ran down through that crevice and onto the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant that was hidden in a cave below.
IN 2005 subsurface excavations resulted in the preliminary documentation of the crucifixion site as described by Ron Wyatt. In addition we were able to gain new insight as to the surrounding buildings and the cistern with its plastered walls.
Those excavations were extremely dangerous. After consulting with safety engineers from the Israel Antiquities Authority it was determined that the only reasonable way to continue was to remove the material that had been deposited over thousands of years - an excavation requiring the removal of as much as twelve thousand cubic feet of debris - the equivalent of forty dump truck loads. Steel shoring would be required to contain the tremendous pressure of the surrounding material - a seemingly insurmountable task - but not for those who are called according to the purpose of our Creator.
IN JULY,  AUGUST AND AGAIN IN DECEMBER OF 2006, excavation from the surface, literally "brought to light" a tremendous amount of extremely important information for the first time on over a thousand years. Layer upon layer of progressively older civilization was uncovered as the excavation proceeded. A Mameluke wall dating to the 12th century was one of the first archaeological discoveries, found only six feet from the surface, with the Roman level being another twenty feet down.
The work that was accomplished during 2005 and 2006 was nothing less than a miracle. That is the only description.  A few years ago, no one would have ever thought it possible.  Not only has our Heavenly Father opened the doors, but He has blessed our efforts to learn the truth, beyond measure.
At this time, Wyatt Archaeological Research is pleased to announce the release of our new DVD entitled: "Exploring the Ark of the Covenant - Part 2. The DVD documents the complete excavation, from the surface, all the way down to the first century Roman level. Information is provided regarding artifacts dating as far back as the time of King Solomon, including a cylinder seal depicting the Syrian gods from the time of Abraham. On site interviews with Israel Antiquities Authority archaeologists are a part of the presentation, as well as interviews with experts from Israel Museum.
In summary, this DVD contains extremely important information for those who have been following the account of the discovery of the Ark of the Covenant.

August 2006 Excavation Reveals Plastered Enclosure

The Ark of the Covenant - The earthly throne of the Almighty and a container for the Ten Commandments, the stipulations of His covenant with mankind, which He wrote in
stone with His own finger.

The location of the Ark, unknown for thousands of years, has been the subject of great supposition, among Bible students and archaeologists alike. Is it in a cave on Mt. Nebo? - or perhaps concealed beneath a church in Ethiopia? While the speculation continues, there is one man who claimed to have personally seen the Ark of the Covenant - Ron Wyatt. Ron claimed to have located the Ark in Jerusalem, hidden away in a cave system beneath the Calvary escarpment, an area referenced in the Bible as as the place of a skull, the crucifixion site of Yeshua, Jesus of Nazareth - The Christ, The
Messiah of Israel.

Not only did Ron Wyatt claim to have located the Ark, but he also claimed that the crucifixion took place directly above the location of the Ark - that an earthquake at that time opened a fissure between the crucifixion site and that of the Ark - and that the blood of Messiah flowed down through that crack and on to the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant. The Bible states that without the shedding of blood there is no remission. Ron claimed that just as the blood of sacrificial animals, the blood of Jesus, the lamb that was slain, literally fulfilled the covenant requirement for atonement.

Ron believed that the Garden Tomb was the actual sepulchre that Jesus occupied for only three days and three nights. That tomb is, as the Bible states, only a short distance from the place of a skull and the site Ron determined to be that of the crucifixion; - therefore his investigations and excavations were centered in and around the area of the Garden

In 1989 those excavations were closed and since that time there has been a great deal of speculation and controversy surrounding his findings - controversy that has caused a great deal of anguish for the Garden Tomb Association - for Ron was not able to validate his claims - he passed away in 1999, leaving no conclusive evidence.

Since that time, we at Wyatt Archaeological Research have been making every effort to substantiate his claims - to provide a second witness that would transform supposition into established fact. In 2002, after having received permission from the Garden Tomb Association and the Israel Antiquities Authority, our endeavor began in earnest. The DVD presentations are  summaries of a tremendous amount of work that has been done over the past four years - the most labor intensive and expensive projects ever undertaken by Wyatt Archaeological Research. They are dedicated to our Savior and to the scores of volunteer workers and contributors without whom it would have been
impossible to accomplish this monumental task.

Scripture advises us to Prove all things and to hold fast that which is good. The new DVD presentations are based on that premise.  That is the commitment of Wyatt Archaeological Research.


Ron Wyatt's discoveries include Noah's Ark, Sodom and Gomorrah, The Red Sea Crossing, Mt. Sinai, the Ark of the Covenant and How the Pyramids were built. 
This website is your direct and secure online order link for all official publications, videos and press releases.
The following is only a summary of what you will find in the main body of the site.

Ron Wyatt is credited by the Turkish Government with the discovery of Noah's Ark.  He has also made other very important discoveries relating to Biblical archaeology: including the discovery of Sodom and Gomorrah, The Red Sea Crossing, Mt. Sinai in Arabia and The Ark of the Covenant.  

Many explorers have looked on Mt. Ararat for the remains of Noah's Ark.  The Bible however,  does not say that Noah's Ark landed on Mt. Ararat.  It says that Noah's Ark landed upon the mountains of Ararat. (mountains plural)  An examination of the Hebrew manuscripts of Genesis reveals that actual wordage is that Noah's Ark landed upon the mountains of Urartu. (The whole mountainous region in far eastern Turkey.  Ron Wyatt discovered the remains of a fossilized boat constructed of gopher wood and an anchorstone in the mountains of far eastern Turkey which the Turkish government and their scientists believe to be the actual remains of Noah's Ark.

The Bible tells us that Sodom and Gomorrah and all the plain was destroyed due to the wickedness of the people there.  In the early 1980's Ron Wyatt noticed the strange appearance of some "formations" as he passed along the shores of the Dead Sea. They looked to him like city walls and buildings, only whitish in color. For many years, he did nothing about his suspicions but in 1989, Ron discovered something that convinced him that these whitish colored formations weren't just geological formations, but were actually the remains of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Ron Wyatt, when searching for the Red Sea Crossing Site, found a beach on the Gulf of Aqaba which could easily have held the multitude, their flocks, and also pharaoh's army.   Ron went diving in the Red Sea and found various artifacts which he identified as chariot wheels and chariot cabs.  He presented his findings to the head of antiquities in Cairo Egypt, who identified the chariot parts as those from the 18th dynasty. 

In 1978 Ron Wyatt found chariot parts in the Gulf of Aquaba just off the Egyptian shore. At that time, he knew that Mt. Sinai had to be on the opposite shore. Since the Biblical account tells how the people arrived at Mt. Sinai after they crossed the Red Sea; and since the Gulf of Aqaba, which Ron knew to be the crossing site, separates the Sinai Peninsula (Egypt) and Saudi Arabia, there was no doubt as to the location of Mt. Sinai being in Arabia. But where in Arabia?  Ron studied the Biblical account and saw on the flight maps of the area that there was a mountain range in the northwestern area of Saudi which he felt had the potential to be Mt. Sinai. 

Ron Wyatt claimed that he found the Ark of the Covenant. 
He was never allowed to provide conclusive evidence. "More and more we are hearing of new books and tales about the location of the Ark of the Covenant, some based on theories and some based on actual claims of sightings. Ron Wyatt also claimed to have found the Ark of the Covenant in 1982 - but how do you know who to believe?  Until you can see solid evidence for yourself, you cannot know for sure who is telling the true story." ......Mrs. Ron ( Mary Nell ) Wyatt

There is only one known written explanation of how the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids.  Because it was written so many years after the age of the pyramid, few historians or archaeologists have given it much attention.  Herodotus of Asia Minor, (d. 425 B.C.) traveled extensively in Egypt, collecting the verbal history of this most ancient nation.  He wrote about the construction of the pyramids.

In review, this web site relates to the Biblical discoveries of Ron Wyatt founder of Wyatt Archaeological Research WAR and Wyatt Archaeological Museum.  Ron has been credited by the Turkish government with the discovery of Noah's Ark in the mountains of Ararat.  He is also responsible for the discovery of Sodom and Gomorrah, The Exodus Red Sea Crossing on the Gulf of Aqaba and Mt. Sinai in Arabia or ancient Midian.  This web site relates to the history of the Bible from the time of creation and continues through the ages providing information given by the prophet Moses who wrote the first books of the Bible.  You will find information on the ancient civilizations including Israel and the Israelites, the dynasty of Egypt Turkey Rome Assyria Greece and Babylon.  You will also find references to the Jews the Christians the Christian faith and the church.  You will read about Joseph and the pharaoh  Thutmoses and Hapshepsut of the Nile.  Find out about the discovery of The Ark of the Covenant with it's mercy seat constructed of gold under which were found the ten commandments of God, the law of our Creator, written by the finger of Jesus Christ, King of Kings.  You will hear the account of Ron Wyatt about crucifixion blood on the mercy seat the most holy place and the high priest.   Find out about the temple of Solomon and the truth about the resurrection the empty tomb and consider the prophecy of the book of Revelation and the prophesies of Daniel Ezekiel and Isaiah.
