The legendary biblical artefact may have to be moved from the church in which it is thought to reside.
The Ark of the Covenant was brought to the forefront of the public's imagination when it was featured in the Indiana Jones movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark". Said to have held the original tablets inscribed with the Ten Commandments, the Ark's whereabouts has never been confirmed however many believe it is located in a small chapel in Ethiopia. Now due to a leaky roof the Ark may need to be moved to a new home, providing a chance for historians to confirm or deny its presence there once and for all.
