Mary, if there is enough interest in a tour - either the two week Lehi Trail starting in Jerusalem, or a one week Land of Bountiful tour, it will be announced by www.discovernephisbountiful.com. Email them and they will keep you posted! Warren

Hi Alece, Mary. There are no tours planned by Warren this year. However, the just released DVD is the closest thing to it-with Warren sharing insights and narrator Scot Proctor guiding the viewer through the Bountiful sites and all the latest evidence. Beautiful footage and fascinating watch -see the discoveries for yourself at https://www.lehiinarabia.com

Warren Aston (father of Chad and Claire Aston -- who worked on this team -- and who -- with Claire -- first "discovered" Khor Kharfot/Wadi Sayq in the early 90's), typically takes at least one tour in each year in October. We were part of one of his tours (Maurine and Scot helped with this one) in 2008 and then were part of an expedition to the Khor with him in 2011. If he is contemplating another tour in 2016, you should definitely sign up -- and especially if Maurine and Scot are also part of it!

Analyzing the satellite image, it is clear that the platform at the southwest is a regular rectangle. Its E end is formed of a perfect circle encompassing the entire E third. At the NE corner of the platform is a small circle of trees. The geometry of the formation raises interest. It could have been a pond or well. Beginning at the E edge of that small grove is a large oval, very faint but most noticeable at its northern edge, about twice as big as that grove. It gives the impression of having been an enclosure. Immediately E of that oval is a small tree or shrub at the center of another circle. // To construct a ship at such a place, it could be built on supports "after the manner of men" for launch into the ocean, or it could have been built by the khor, with excavation allowing eventual access to the ocean.

Hi, this is a great story. How long will it be going on? I'm in Dubai and have experience in Photogrammetry which would be possible using Aaron's DJI. I would be interested to help in this or future projects.

Very interesting--we have a friend who has done considerable work in Mexico with the idea of sacred geometry among the indigenous people of Mexico whom he has come to know well over a forty year period. I hope he's seeing this work.

Very exciting to have this intriguing project underway. What a blessing to have the Oman government working together with this group to rediscover history.

Just saw the brand new DVD LEHI IN ARABIA. Wow-what a beautiful place- Really helps me visualise the work that's going on there. Recommend it to anyone interested in this exciting work! https://www.lehiinarabia.com

I'm glad to see that Kanab, Utah, will be well represented with the presence of Brent Heaton on your team. Brent was our high school student body president when I was in the 7th grade (yes, we had 6 grades in KHS with a total enrollment of about 200). Best of luck, Brent and all.

I may be in Italy for another year, but I'll follow your work as though I were right there.

Congratulations to the team and all involved. I believe this is a tipping point in the study of Book of Mormon archaeology. Great things will come of these worthy efforts.

I am so happy to all of you who are so intent and dedicated to this wonderful project. It makes me wish I knew about or had training in my life to be able to be there involved in this great undertaking. My prayers, and cheers, will be with you as you dig and discover all the marvels the Lord has there for you all to find. God speed this great work.
MaryFebruary 26, 2016
Wow-wish I could be there. After reading this and recently watching the incredible story about how this place was found (LEHI IN ARABIA) - from https://www.lehiinarabia.com - wish I could be there and be part of it all. Is there any one doing tours there?
