The disappearance of the Ark of the Covenant has captured the imagination of many eager scholars of the Old Testament. Because no definite mention of the Ark's destruction has been recorded, it is only natural that man would wish to solve the mystery. Various documented attempts have been made by people such as Parker and Crotser to find the Ark. The Mount Nebo saga, Irish tradition and Ethiopian legend all deal with the possible survival of the Ark. On the whole these stories each played a role to legitimise the nation in which they occurred. However, at this stage it is not clear if the Ark has really survived through all these centuries.
