  • Observation, individual resourcefulness... what would we be without them?

The deep sea trawlers have been destroying any potential evidence from the world's shores and shallow seas, but it doesn't seem to be regarded so big issue because you dont know if the evidence is there in that case. I'd regard it a bigger issue in archeological perspective though, because it destroys any potential evidence that we haven't even begun to find yet. But I guess it's late for that now.

I've been born again 31,8,2014 approximately 21:35 local time. A moment free of clutter in the mind, emancipating myself like an escapist, allowing myself to breathe life in a stronger, less physical level... though it does resonate to physical world. It's the oomph.

unfortunately Lady, this kind of thing happens all the time over here. we've lost hundreds of ancient sites to industry. a few years ago we lost a group of stone circles to a quarry company, despite dedicated protests, campaigns by local residents that an alternative site was a better prospect, and all to no avail. archeologists were allowed two weeks to excavate & document the site, then it was destroyed, after 4000yrs of doing no-one any harm. the thornborough henges near to me are in danger of being lost to a gypsum mine, ruining a major prehistoric site when the whole area is built on gypsum and could be mined elsewhere.
even stonehenge has a road built through it, that campaigners have been trying for decades to have removed, but govt. doesn't deem this most famous of sites as being worth the cost.
sad indeed.

That really is unfortunate... :(

I love going to the ancient sites here, it's so amazing to feel the petroglyphs and wonder who it was so long ago that left this tiny piece of art and probably had no idea that it would last this long.  It's like holding hands with the past.

There are grave sites on Maui I visited that are really old with the bones of the deceased still in there.  Having been lovingly placed by family and some still get flowers and other gifts.

I feel sad that some people don't care.

It is kind of like someone tearing down Mt Rushmore to get gravel for a parking lot. It is simply disrespectful. Or knocking down Stonehenge to build condos.
