Very interesting, thanks for posting.
The trouble is lines like this
but the war-torn area is preventing archaeologists from decoding its riddles
are heard too often in today's world of archelology, where is Indy when we need him!
"The Chubb's are a clan of miscreants, a bunch of evildoers, bad eggs and villains. They were formed in the early 17th century when Junior Chubb's Great-great-great-great (etc.) -Grandfather Artemis Chubb (who was also the town drunk) wed with fishwife Mildred Boffle (who was also the town 'lady of the night'). From that day forth, their descendants have caused havoc throughout the world, from Abdul-Hakin Chubb of the UAE and Vladislav Chubb of Russia, to Chang-ying Chubb of China and Alvaro Chubb of Argentina, and of course, the one and only Junior Chubb." - WillSoMysterious 2012

In a way, I can see how this could become a conflict with the churces leaders, since this conflicts with the notion of the earth being only 6,000 years old. This might put doubt in thier congertions minds, which tend to adhere to more of a creationist theory. We tend to find objects that diproves the creation theory since we find things that proves the theroy more often than not.
There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man and they are stupid!"
Great find ... the Corbeled Roofs are interesting too.
