The Wall of Zarahemla
We have made our plans. Now we are now making our preparations. We will begin the execution of our plan beginning the spring of 2023.
We have high-resolution LiDAR for 32,000 acres. From the images that came from very large data bases we have identified the outlines of ancient defensive walls that are more than five miles long.
We are looking for a wall that anciently protected the largest city in the Heartland of America.
We are coordinating the land, people, skills and equipment to start a proper archaeological dig sometime next April.
Our plan is to dig using the best methods that the world of science offers. We will be ready to dig in the dirt in a systematic way to find evidence a large wall that protected the City of Zarahemla in 320 A.D.
We will be looking for the defensive wall of that city that Mormon described in the first chapter of his book as follows:
6 And it came to pass that I, being eleven years old, was carried by my father into the land southward, even to the land of Zarahemla.
7 The whole face of the land had become covered with buildings, and the people were as numerous almost, as it were the sand of the sea.
We are glad to be at the starting line, and we invite you to join us in this adventure.
