That has been discussed and it would be very expensive as it is not known how deep the pit goes. Also, the owner of the island may not like a wall built around the area as it might destroy the natural beauty of the island itself. I would guess they might try to do a small one around the pit in the future, but cost would be the major factor here.

I think that Graham Hancock proved beyond a shadow of a doubt(to me) that the Ark resides in Ethiopia. I went to college with a wonderful individual, named Soloman. Soloman is native to Ethiopia; when I asked him about the issue of it residing there. Soloman's only responce was "Without question!" He had participated in Timcat on several occasions. I asked him if he or anyone he knew had ever seen the real Item as it has been used in the Timcat, he indicated that he had on two ocassions during religeous ceremonies including Timcat. I do not recall the other ceremony or its origins. I had known Soloman for around ten years at that point and had found him to be unimpeachable.
I have read many ideas on where the Ark is including Graham, Gardner and others. I am one to think the Knights Templar found it along with some treasure and much knowledge in scrolls. I would guess the Ark is either in Scotland or the Americas myself. (Gardner claims it is in France and makes a case for it.)
