Discoveries of Ron's First Trip
One of many massive Drogue Stones and large unique object with appearance of bark. Markings point to them as religious artifacts.
The formation as Ron first saw it in 1977. | Grave marker showing 8 figures with a larger male and a larger female center with eyes closed.
Subsequent Evidence Discovered
Carving Ron found above the Ark. | Carving seen lower right.
Petrified deck timber found with radar. | Sectioned, it revealed lamination.
Best example of many metalic rivets found. | Petrified coral found at 6500 feet in elevation at the formation with a perfectly level and smooth backside that indicates being attached to an object that was not natural.
Unbiased Archaeological Evidence
Standing on the bow of the Ark formation. | The bow of the Viking "ghost" ship of Ladby in Fyen, Denmark after excavation.
The collapsed deck mound of the Ark formation is as expected,
just as the Viking ship of Oseberg, Norway.
The Anglo-Saxon ship, Sutton-Hoo showing iron rivets
and planking impressions.*
Bracket with rivet and indented pins found on the formation.
The formation shows the discoloration of the exposed section material after a 1978 earthquake pulled the surrounding soil away from the northern side.
