Har Karkom: An Italian archaeologist, Emmanuel Anati, has spent over two decades excavating at the site and believes this is the Mountain of God, Mount Sinai. While others disagree -- the age of most of the findings indicates human activity at the site long before the accepted time frame of the Exodus -- Anati and others find the archaeological remains here intriguing. "Anati had one thing that nobody else had at Har Karkom: evidence," says Dr. Richard Freund, an archaeologist from the University of Hartford who has worked at the site. "He had pottery. He had architecture. He had geoglyphs. And he had 40,000 pieces of rock art etched into the rocks ... He had hundreds of altars on top of the mountain." (Ely Brown / ABC News)
