From the Preface 

In mid-October 1997, clay capsules marked in wedge-shaped symptoms, have been found within a collapse the Accursed Mountains in Albania. The neighborhood shepherds who stumbled on them, took the artifacts to their pastor, an beginner linguist and folklore aficionado, who at the beginning look pointed out the cuneiform writing as Sumerian. He was once proven the invention web site the place he came across a number of different fragments, prompting him to additional proceed the quest. within the wintry weather months from November 1997 to February 1998, 4 extra capsules have been prepare out of thirty-seven fragments amassed within the inside of the cave. Six fragments (frgs. 2, five, 18, thirteen, 27, nine) didn't fit any of the partly restored capsules, suggesting that extra items may possibly lay hidden deeper into the cave. even if, those weren't stumbled on till the top of September 1998, whilst a landslide printed a separate cave pocket enclosing a wood ark, including 3 extra pills to the collection. 
Clearly, the artifacts didn't belong to the neighborhood tradition. Their scattered recommended that comparable previous landslides may need prompted free tree-roots and dirt to shut a part of the cave off from its mouth. because the texts have purely been in part translated, it really is as but unknown even if the final 3 items made up the complete set of the unique drugs. such a lot of what we all know comes from the notes of the pastor, who for almost ten years labored on interpreting a superb a part of the scripts from a language he before everything believed to be heavily with regards to the unique Indo-European, yet for this reason pointed out because the misplaced language of the Pelasgians. In a later observe, he writes that this used to be a combined language, resembling Odysseus's description of Crete, the place many barbarian tongues have been spoken facet by way of facet and mingled with each other (Hom. Od. xix. 172-8). After deciphering the cuneiform, he translated the texts into Albanian, attempting to hold as as regards to the unique as attainable. What emerged used to be one other model of Genesis, a production jam-packed with strife the pastor referred to as "the misplaced publication of wars." 
Dating again to c. 1400-1100 BC, the capsules are one of the oldest apocrypha fabrics ever discovered. they're to boot of specific curiosity not just for his or her content material, but additionally for the bizarre web site in their discovery. Following contemporary archaeological reveals revealing the Philistines to be just one of a conglomerate of tribes that fought opposed to God's selected humans (see e.g. Bierling 2002), those historic warriors were conjectured to be those who introduced the capsules from Israel.
In his description of the ocean humans pirate alliance, Ramesses II (c. 1285 BC) names a few of these tribes, between them the Dardanians (Da-ar-d(a)-an-ya), who, after attacking Egypt, grew to become their consciousness to Israel. because it is widely known, those have been Aeneas's humans, the Trojans' allies within the struggle. In precedent days, even if, there has been additionally a Dardanian state in present-day Kosovo, most probably one of many a number of colonies of that department of the Dardanian tribe that traveled westward after the sack of Troy. The pastor got here to contemplate those humans because the attainable providers of the ark and the cuneiform tablets. 
Assuming that this could be what Israel known as the Ark of the Covenant, misplaced to the Philistines within the wars defined in 1 Samuel, the soldiers who buried its contents within the Accursed Mountains may be those said within the Bible because the giants, Goliath and corporate. those are the legendary giants north of Greece (ancient Gr. gegas), whose demonym nonetheless survives within the Gheg tribes of northern Albania.
