The story of Noah’s Ark tells about a great flood that occured several thousand years ago. The flood wiped out every family in the world except one. This story is widely believed by many people.
It is stated in the Bible that Noah and his family were the only ones who escaped the destruction. They took with them two of each species of animals on earth into the legendary Ark. The Ark that Noah built is believed (by many) to be still resting on Mount Ararat in Turkey where it was stranded when the great flood subsided.

Many explorers have made expeditions to Mount Ararat in search of the Ark, and many of them claimed to have seen bits of wood from the Ark. The most detailed account was made by two Turkish journalists in 1949. They reported that the Ark was not on Mount Ararat, but on Mount Judi, which equivalent to the size of a football pitch. They found the bones of sea-animals and the supposed grave of Noah nearby. However, this sighting has never been confirmed by any other explorers.
In 1956, an explorer named Fernand Navarra, published a book describing how he had excavated planks and an L-shaped beam from a frozen lake on Mount Ararat. More planks which dated between 3000 BC and 700 AD were also found.
