These journeys include searching for the real Mount Sinai in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, exploring in Turkey along with Apollo Fifteen Astronaut Jim Irwin for the remains of Noah's ark, following ancient Assyrian and Babylonian flood accounts in Iran and tracking the Ark of the Covenant from Israel to Egypt and across the Ethiopian highlands. Off the coast of Malta, his research team found the probable location of Paul's shipwreck, and more specifically, the accounting of all four anchors as described in the Bible. (Acts Chapter 27).
