Had to share this little gem. Get Out of the Car!!!!!!! This is a true account recorded in the Police Log of Sarasota, Florida.) An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags and drew he...

Very interesting article there. My favorite part though was at the end. Why do the results of Barsoum's research matter most today? Two words: earth cements. "How energy intensive and/or complicated can a 4,500 year old technology really be? The answer to both questions is not very," Barsoum explain...

I agree with you also Michelle. I should have used the rolling eyes smiley with my original post :roll: I was feeling very sarcastic when I quoted them.
I feel it's piracy, pure and simple, and a tragedy for real archaeology.

Now that's a lot of coinage!

Not exactly a lot of archaeological info, more on the lines of salvage, but still interesting. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/huff-wires/20070518/treasure-ship Odyssey likely will return to the same spot for more coins and artifacts. "We have treated this site with kid gloves and the archaeological w...

Thanks Cogs. This is one of the few days in the year when I remember how chaotic it is to have seven children. Don't get me wrong I love being mom but it sure is loud.

I recorded a National Geographic special on "Lost Kings of the Bible" last night. It's about David and Solomon and is very good on the current archaeology. If anyone wants it just say so and I'll ship it out to you. (Arch has already gotten it!) Thanks for sending it to me Min. I'm going to watch i...

And then a little more of the story with a picture even. http://apnews.excite.com/article/20070508/D8P06V0O0.html Netzer said a team of researchers found pieces of a limestone sarcophagus believed to belong to the ancient king. Although there were no bones in the container, he said the sarcophagus' ...

I wonder if Hollywood figured out how to work in a few car chases or explosions? Before anyone laughs....remember the opening battle scene of Gladiator with the exploding firepots. As a matter of fact there were exploding firepots. Now how in the world did you guess? :shock: I didn't notice any car...

I think this topic started out to be about the movie 300, so here goes. My daughter made me go see this movie with her on Sunday. She was interested in all the hot bodies. I must say she was not disappointed, I had to wipe the drool off of her face several times. I annoyed all the serious minded by ...

I am way behind on watching all of this stuff, but I skipped ahead to the French revolution last night. I enjoyed the show for the most part and actually learned something new. I had never heard about the Marat worship before, interesting to say the least. Unlike the show, I believe the French revol...

Beagle - Thank you for those great links. I had never experienced the emagazine Sub Rosa before but, being blessed with an open mind, I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit.
