A 4000-year-old Mesopotamia clay tablet dealing with the ancient biblical story of Noah’s ark has gone on display at the British Museum in London.

According to the Associated Press, a 4,000-year-old tablet from Mesopotamia shows the ship may have been round. The recently deciphered artifact gives instructions for a round vessel known as a “coracle” as well as the famous direction about animals entering “two by two.”

Irving Finkel, the assistant keeper of Middle East items at the British Museum, translated the instructions and wrote about the issue in his new book, “The Ark Before Noah.”

Engineers will soon follow the tablet’s instructions to see whether a coracle could have actually sailed. Meanwhile, the museum will put the artifact on display.
