Expedition Claims Evidence of Queen of Sheba Found in Ethiopia

Bible and archaeology news

British archaeologists exploring the Gheralta plateau in Ethiopia’s northern highlands claim to have discovered an enormous goldmine once operated by the ancient kingdom of Saba, home to the legendary Queen of Sheba. The expedition, led by author, lecturer and former British Museum curator Louise Schofield, claims to have found the entrance to the mine, a 20-foot-tall stone stela carved with Sabaean inscriptions and symbols, as well as the remnants of a temple dedicated to the chief god of the land of Saba. The discoveries were made as part of Schofield’s environmental development work in Ethiopia on behalf of the Tigray Trust.
