MT. SINAI? Archaeologist Emmanuel Anati, standing before Har Karkom, claims it is the mountain of God that the Biblical authors envisioned when they referred to Mt. Sinai. Located in the southern Negev near today’s border between Israel and Egypt, this flat ridge and its valleys are where Anati discovered 1,300 archaeological sites, including 40,000 rock engravings and more than 120 rock cult sites.
