Heartland Connecting To Carthage (10/4/2023)



We are so excited. Doors are opening in the Ancient World, and our understanding of ancient times in the New World is increasing. The world’s oldest ship replica that crossed the Atlantic is coming together in Montrose, Iowa, on the west bank of the Upper Mississippi.

The ship represents the efforts of thousands of people over the last two decades. The ship sailed on the open oceans for more than 30,000 miles around Africa and across the Atlantic. During the Covid Crisis, she sank in the mud off the shore of Florida. She came up out of the mud and was cut into pieces. Her untimely sinking in the muddy canal nearly caused the U.S. Coast Guard to scuttle her to the bottom of the seas.

Just in time, Heartland Research came to her rescue, and she is now in the care and keeping of faithful people. She is a symbol of how God restores what was lost.

We need your help to continue with this project. We invite all people of goodwill to join us as we put the pieces back together.

There is no other artifact in America that so clearly and directly connects to the Ancient World. Heartland Research stands ready to restore the world’s oldest ship replica here in the New World. We are sure that tens of millions of Americans will want to see the significance of the 40-ton ship that re-writes the history of ancient America. Heartland Research invites you to join us as we proceed with this significant project.

We are working closely with new friends in the Old World who are helping us to understand how, in ancient times, the two worlds connected across the Atlantic.

Carthage Room Bardo

In 600 B.C. Carthage was a major power center in the Ancient World. For centuries the city rivaled Rome. This rivalry culminated in the three Punic Wars, fought between 264 B.C. and 146 B.C., ending with the utter and horrific destruction of both Carthage and its culture.

Djerba Ghriba

The ancient El Ghriba Synagogue (Arabic: كنيس الغريبة), also known as the Djerba Synagogue, is located on the Tunisian island of Djerba. It is situated in the Jewish village of Hara Seghira (currently known as er-Riadh), a few miles southwest of Houmt El Souk, the main town of Djerba.

The synagogue is the oldest in Tunisia and possibly all of Africa. Many believe it is the world’s oldest synagogue in continuous operation since before the founding of Rome.

Besides being the center of the island’s Jewish life, it is also a pilgrimage site. While extensively renovated in the 19th century, the buildings may date to the 6th century B.C. One of the accounts associated with its founding claims that a stone or a door from Solomon’s Temple or the Second Temple is incorporated into the building.

Djerba is home to around 1,300 Jews, and El Ghriba is an important feature of Jewish life on the island in Tunisia. According to legend, the construction of the synagogue goes back to the High Priests’ escape following the destruction of Solomon’s Temple by the Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar II in the year 586 B.C. This would have been the same time as when the People of Mulek escaped to Zarahemla in the New World. The High Priests carried with them a door and a stone of the destroyed Temple. Thus the synagogue links the Jewish diaspora to the “sole sanctuary of Judaism”. In modern times, the local Jews are distinguished by their dress, which includes a black band around their pants, which signifies the destruction of the Temple.
