Parfitt, now a professor of religion at Florida International University, clarified that what Ullendorff saw in , when he was a British army officer leading forces into Ethiopia, was a copy, and not the actual Ark. Furthermore, he clarified that Ullendorff never actually believed it was the real Ark, but kept the pretense due to his work in the African country.

His supposed claim to have seen the real Ark was not challenged in Ethiopia itself. In other research, archaeologists working at Shiloh in the West Bank found 10 pre-First Temple pottery jugs in July , which they said could point in the direction of the Ark of the Covenant.
