[[File:Ark1.png|thumb]]The '''Ark of the Covenant''' is a sacred chest housed in the Holy of Holies in the Hebrew tabernacle at Shiloh. It is the compartment in which the stone tablets of the Ten Commandments, Aaron's budded staff, and the golden vase of manna are permanently stored. It was fashioned from acacia wood and overlaid with pure gold. Far from being a mere piece of furniture, the ark is a symbol of God's very presence among the Jewish people and his protection over them.

Unfortunately, Branan discovers that no warriors are left in Shiloh to defend the ark, as they are all in the town of Shechem protecting that settlement from Philstine invasion.
