Noah’s Ark Found—in Alaska!
The supposed remnants of Noah's ark have been "discovered" in a wide range of places.
But this 1902 discovery in Rampart, Alaska, on the Porcupine River, seems totally forgotten now.
I wonder if a followup expedition ever was mounted...?

Sounds like it would be interesting to study regardless of the origins.

Sounded like a "plan" to me. How much were the tickets to the expedition going for?

I think that people were more easily swayed by oddball stories a century ago. I like how the mention of the "Secretary of the Young Men's CHRISTIAN Association" lends an air of legitimacy to the story.
More likely some of the natives were having fun with the white man.

there are some petrified ships on desert tours through the canyons of California although I don't remember exactly where... its the chest that's interesting, i wonder if 'hollow' could mean it floats and/or is still airtight, and whatever's inside is preserved? must have been pretty old to have been so solid...

And right under that article is one decrying a cure for deafness! I'm getting suspicious of this rag.

It sounds like we should be sending Clive Cussler and NUMA there to investigate.
