    Archaeologists discovered gold and silver plates from King Darius the Great in Persepolis, representing one fo the best examples of ancient record-keeping using metal plates. Buried for millennia, interestingly resemble the engraved plates that Joseph Smith reported locating and translating into the Book of Mormon a century earlier in America.
