A History of the Wyatt Archeological Research Site

This being fair close to the weekend, I’ve decided to take a little look-see in the grand history of WAR. In the earliest capture, I found this gem of a page, which confirms WAR president Richard Rives once believed in 714-X quackery. Also found was this never-after seen panorama of Jebel al-Lawz (alright, it can be found at Panoramio, but otherwise, my point stays), part of which was cropped to make the commonly seen image of the “burnt” (varnished) peak, which as the photo (taken within a few yards of 28°35’1″N  35°23’8″E) tells us, was located precisely at 28°35’9″N,  35°21’33″E. Indeed, it was not even a peak; the “peak” effect is simply an optical illusion caused by the fact this part of the actual peak is closer to the photographer. A photo of the stone rings is also available (see here for a newer picture of the same rings).

The Sodom and Gomorrah page was never finished since 2000.

The Ark of the Covenant page has changed quite significantly. It used to be multi-paged and had plenty of stuff about the blood, including pictures of those fictional “Somatids” and the microscope used to detect them.

On Feb 7, 2007, WAR concluded that it was best to remove all materials relating to the Ark of the Covenant due to the embarrassing results of the 2005 excavation. They put up, instead, the results of the excavation. Curiously, the original high quality images of February 07 were made into what they are now by May. Why? No one knows. Also, the warning was discontinued in 2009, to be replaced with the current page.
