Thank you Beagle that is a great site, I already have it bookmarked but haven't been there in a while. Just spent a fascinating 40 minutes following the links. To the extent that we can compare with living and prehistoric humans, there is no support for the idea that Neandertals went extinct because...

And speaking of Zahi, found this news item: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2087-2517951,00.html ACCORDING to legend, the pharaoh Tutankhamun brought down a curse on all those present at the opening of his tomb. But now the boy king of Egypt has finally met his match — the curse of the Mille...

Okay, but if the Apatasaurus had to eat continuously and had to drop the eggs as they went how did they make those eggs? Did they explain that one? Cause my mind is totally boggled and I think I'm afraid to think about it in case an image forms in my brain. :shock: :lol:

Dear popelane24, Try reading the other bosnia pyramid threads(yawn) on this forum then get back to us. Unless you still believe in their reality at the end of all that reading. In which case might I suggest we might all be a bit happier if you just go to a fantasy(I mean different) forum for this ty...

A 60-year old Professor of the Thrace University was arrested when the police authorities in Thessaloniki found in his two houses about 10,000 ancient items.
Now that is just a bit of an illegal collection wouldn't you say?

http://www.archaeology.org/0701/abstracts/northsea.html I am in a dark room at the University of Birmingham in England, looking at a 10,000-year-old landscape projected on a wall. The map in front of me is 12 feet across, and glows in unfocused luminous orange. When I put on battery-operated polari...

I'm not sure from reading the article that the organs were removed before burial. "People were stealing bodies from graves around Adelaide," she says, adding that many traditional burial mounds were in sand dunes, which made it particularly easy for bodies to be taken. "Sometimes it was within days ...

Interesting. From what I've read about plesiosaurs they seem to favor very cold water. But then, the water wasn't that cold at that time. I had thought that also and was looking for info when I found this site. http://www.oceansofkansas.com/Ples-roam.html From where most of their fossils have been ...

Is "Apocalypto" Pornography?

Another archaeologists take on the Gibson film http://www.archaeology.org/online/reviews/apocalypto.html/ But I find the visual appeal of the film one of the most disturbing aspects of "Apocalypto." The jungles of Veracruz and Costa Rica have never looked better, the masked priests on the temple jum...

Just managed to watch the Masada episode and I agree with Min and Arch. It's definitely a pity they didn't throw Simcha off the mountain. That poor man who he interviewed on Masada and then again in Jerusalem was about ready to have an apoplexy. And I can understand why, he has been finding all thes...
