    Anyone know ancient ancient history?

    "The Ark of Covenant itself was a small box made of acacia wood, overlaid with gold. It measured 1.15 metres long, 0.7 metres wide and 0.7 metres high. It was carried by two long bars, also made of acacia wood overlaid with gold. It contained the the two stone tablets of the Law (the 10 commandments), Aaron's Rod that Budded, and The Golden Pot of 'Hidden' Manna.
    The Ark of the Covenant resided in the Holy of Holies, the innermost room of the Tabernacle. Access was only permitted once per year, on the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur). Access was restricted to one person only, the high priest. He had to come into the Holy of Holies with the blood of a goat, on behalf of his own and the people of Israel's sins."

    Someone asked me firstly when the torah was written, but secondly if this was before or after the covenant... I'm totally at a loss to answer. (The worlds of Xbox lovers and religious people seem to be uniting to try and work out the secrets of Halo and Halo II...)
