Richard Rives, President of Wyatt Archaeological Research, became aware of the discoveries of Ron Wyatt in 1990. Richard read Ron's book "Discovered Noah's Ark," and made arrangements to visit him. After seeing the actual evidence and expressing his intention to visit the sites, Richard was invited to participate in excavations at the Noah's Ark site. In 1990, Richard and Ron traveled to Eastern Turkey where the two of them accomplished what is now known as "The Noah's Ark Mini Excavation."
