Quoted from OLDPINGUY:
I was impressed.
Finding pre pit wood, where there is drains, thats impressive.
The Brooch or rope ornament find, was a stunner, for dating.
I have only seen one coiled rope piece of jewelry similar. No leaf,
but it was verbally dated by owner as revolutionary period.
It didnt have a hinge pin, but was worn tied into a scarf.
Slow, yes, but they 3 years of episodes to fill, so my expectations are low.
A real neat excavation continues at Gobekli Tepe, if anyone is interested....oldest find of its kind.
I ran into a small display at IAPPA, and it turned out a principal there was involved....we talked for an hour! Amazing Find![quoted image][quoted image]
There is some fascinating stuff right here in America. there are thousands of burial mounds that native Americas say were there when they showed up. Hobbiest archeologists in the 1800s excavated some and found burials containing bones of giants over 7 feet tall
