British archaeologist claims to have found a treasure mine belongs to the Queen of Sheba, who is also famous as the Queen Bilqis of the Acts of Solomon mentioned in the history Habeshan, gospel, and the Koran.

He is believed to be the leader of the ancient kingdom of Sheba. ?Territory includes Ethiopia and Yemen in the modern era.

As the site loaded Science, Discovery, February 15, 2012, the Queen found a gold mine hidden in a hill in the plains Gheralta, northern Ethiopia. A mine that has never been explored before, in the territorial kingdom of Sheba who had ruled for 3,000 years.

One that I like about archeology is, its ability to relate to the legends and mythology. Fact that we might find mine Queen Bilqis is extraordinary, said? Louise Schofield, an archaeologist at the same time the British museum curator, told The Observer.

Based on the Old Testament, the Queen of Sheba come a long way from the mysterious kingdom to meet King Solomon in Jerusalem. Equip yourself with the Queen's entourage, laden camels carrying spices, gold, and precious stones.

Met with Solomon, the Queen of Sheba captivated by the wisdom of the Prophet, nor the splendor of his kingdom. Before leaving, he gave gifts of gold talen 120, or equivalent to 4.5 tons!

Legend said, she gave birth to Solomon. Offspring, Menelik, became the kings of Abyssinia.

Schofield found mine hidden behind an ancient stone-carved 20-foot image of the sun and the crescent. "The symbol of the land of Sheba," he said.

I crawled under a rock, watch the live cobras are called here, and met with an inscription Sheba language, the language used by the Queen.

Buried about four feet below the surface of the hill surrounded by vultures, the tunnel showing the symbol of ancient skulls at the entrance. According to Schofield, it was a sculpture of Sheba.

He added that the existence of old mine structures were not recognized, despite the fact that, locals panning for gold in the nearby river.

Not far from the mine site, archaeologists found the remains of finely carved stone columns and which may be part of a buried temple, believed to be dedicated to the Moon God of Sheba. The site of the battlefield, complete with ancient bones, were also found nearby.

The exact size of the mine, the entrance blocked by boulders, has not been determined. However, tests conducted by the gold seekers led to a suspicion, ?there is ample room in the basement, a tunnel large enough to be traversed by foot.

Large-scale excavation sites will be made after Schofield obtain the necessary funding.
