About preconceived ideas that the trail actually does exist
It is important to point out that this course is intended to follow academic guidelines to achieve any substantial goals. Accordingly, while we explore a number of hypothesis associated with the subject matter, it is only what can be substantiated that really counts. As this is an ongoing trail, new information is constantly being discovered and assessed. It is this dynamic situation that makes the course such a meaningful experience.
The course objective is to teach students the best ways to approach a search for the lost Ark of the Covenant. It also focuses on awareness for the potential of uncovering other information on the trail, seemingly related or not, which could be just as exciting!
