Walking around an archaeological site with Dr. F. Richard Hauck is like putting on a completely new set of eyes. He sees things that we just can’t see. He’s had a lifetime of training in spotting the slightest change in the landscape and seeing the tiniest anomaly in an alignment of rocks or the patterns in a valley. He can quickly discern manmade vs. natural. When you’re walking around the best candidate for Nephi’s Bountiful he’s a real handy guy to have around.

We first met Dr. Hauck (Ric) about 28 years ago. Since that time we’ve come to know him very well. He’s a world-class expert on the Book of Mormon. He is a wonderful balance of knowledge and intuition. He is delightful to be around and fascinating to be with in the field.

We interviewed him onsite at Khor Kharfot, right at the place of the potential holy sanctuary. Click on the video to have further understanding of this discovery.
