Heres something I find funny in perspective.
I find the view that we have all hoped for, a "Treasure" to be found, to be the "hook"
Yet, I have been entertained, and pleased with all that they have found on the show.
All the new "unknowns" that the island has had in its history, is a treasure to me.
In the 60s, when I read this story too, in Readers Digest and Got "Hooked"
I too, became a kid looking for "Treasure".
I never found anything of value,
but when I did dig up an old bottle from a 200 year old outhouse well, or dove into a dusty basement for
a neat picture frame, or pinball, or even spent 6 hours chiseling out a Herkimer Diamond in NY,
each one of these came home as a forever treasure with great pride.
(I also share this, as Ive been going through boxes, and recently found all this!)
I hope for many years of this show, as opposed to all these years summed in a one hour special.
Heres my latest Archeology thrill.
It addresses the misinformation about clothing, for one thing, from the year 250 AD. Approx.
Its a site called Dura Europus
Greek, Roman, Persian and Hebrew archeology frozen in Time.
Awesome Hebrew Synagogue and Mithric Temple.
Coinage also supports Serapis as being prevalent, which disagrees with "History"pasted_image (resized).pngpasted_image (resized).png
