Expedition Claims Evidence of Queen of Sheba Found in Ethiopia


British archaeologists traversing the Gheralta plateau in Ethiopia’s northern highlands claim to have discovered an immense goldmine once operated by the ancient kingdom of Saba, home to the legendary Queen of Sheba. An excursion, led by author, lecturer and former British Museum’s incharge Louise Schofield, demands to have found the place of entering to the mine, a 20-foot-tall stone stela carved with Sabaean inscriptions and symbols, as well as the traces of a temple committed to the chief god of the land of Saba. The discoveries were made as section of Schofield’s environmental development work in Ethiopia on behalf of the Tigray Trust.
