Archaeologists strike Biblical gold with discovery of the Queen of Sheba’s fabled mines

Archaeology: Louise Schofield stands by the spot where she has discovered the entrance to the Queen of Sheba's gold mine in Ethiopia

British archaeologists have struck gold with a discovery that may solve the mystery of where the Queen of Sheba unearthed her fabled treasures.

According to the Bible, the ruler of Sheba, which spanned modern-day Ethiopa and Yemen, travelled to King Solomon in Jerusalem, bringing 120 talents (four-and-half tons) of gold.

Now an ancient goldmine, together with the ruins of a temple, has been found on the high Gheralta plateau in northern Ethiopia, part of the Queen’s former territory.

The entrance lay concealed behind a 20ft stone or slab carved with a sun and crescent moon, the ‘calling card of the land of Sheba’, according to excavation leader Louise Schofield.

Ms Schofield told the Observer: ‘I crawled beneath the stone – wary of a 9ft cobra I was warned lives here – and came face to face with an inscription in Sabaean, the language that the Queen of Sheba would have spoken’.
