I hate pictures in low resolution and unclear.There are not reasons for news than!We have to trust someone about something we can not see!This is not your fault of course.But post about gluon is good.Most of artifact's pictures on Net are "invisible".With P.S.:"Trust me there is picture/script of this/that?"Are we stupid to see that?Underestimated for sure we are!

I have several friends who are landscape gardeners in the UK.  2 of them work out of Manchester, which means "Main Camp".  They have an extensive collection of Roman coins and other small artifacts that they have collected over the years, just from cultivating and maintaining peoples flower beds.  2 years ago they had it appraised at over a 100,000 lbs.
 
And I spend hours scrounging for an arrowhead.  ConfusedWink

As a side note, the British Law regarding found antiquities is well thought out and encourages people not to hide or conceal their finds (finds are usually the property of the finder, they must report it to the Crown can offer fair market value for exceptional cultural items).

The operative phrase is "culturally significant".  Apparently, Manchester is one of those places where you can't put a shovel in the ground without finding something.  Coins, oil lamps etc. small artifacts.  The Gov. only gets twisted over things like the Staffordshire Hoard. 
 
In the US it varies from state to state.  Unfortunately, it all comes down to enforcement, and the money available to investigate and prosecute.

Look forward to it....and in the case above I smell an 'anthro' on that team.... because your right the generalist 'archy'.... avoids religious and theological investigations like the Juarez clap. Unless they have been specifically sub trained (and then funded by religious institutions) and generally that's the lads from the Private religious schools..with that in their background.

If this is the same person, she has figured out that the Greeks may have been the first paleontologists.
She went back over 50 years of site notes from other excavations and found that fossils were found in almost every major excavation, but only noted in the site notes.

Archaeologists and Native Americans team up to interpret the past, shape the future

I am always pleased to see this as it does a number of things. But most importantly it shows that arcaeologists who cooperative and coordinate and 'work' with native leaders and render respect, as they deal with digs and artifacts, are the ones who will be respected in return. It has nothing to with religion or even spirituality imo...but just simple respect for anothers beliefs system and that person's past.
 
People generally have a pride in their past and when it's not trampled on.. chances are they remain grateful in return. Hence the reason for NAGPRA and like agreements. It has proven to be a winner for all concerned.

This is probably true, many people even say that blonde hair, blue eyes originated in what is now afghanistan, northern pakistan, kashmir, so these people probably went to europe at some point in ancient times
 
Genetically there are still lots of similarities between northern south asians and eastern/northern europeans, even the language similarity between slavic and sanskrit is interesting

There is a problem here that I don't see addressed.  The Basque.  There are quite a few scholars who believe the Basque language to be at least 30,000 years old.  The Basque are not Kashmiri and it's widely accepted that the Basque were in Europe before the IE migration.  Or has that now also been "revised".Unhappy

From what I remember from the classic period, the Maya dug out large segments of fertile mud from the wetlands and used it to build good growing soil for terraced crops. As the drought periods became longer the efforts began to fail.

Ancient worshipers wrote praises of Gods as graffiti there wishes would have been fulfilled!There were lot of
pottery with mummified animals inside and written wish descriptions outside,with praises of right God!Only
difference had had here:Religious language was one,people's language would have been other.Graffiti would
have been people's language and signs.

This may also be an example of a theology in their exuberence to defend it...defame another.... as blasphemous. And even an attempt to exorcise it away thru the graffiti. We will have to wait and see.

''WHEN Alan Price found himself with an hour to spare he decided to walk along the beach looking for the semi-precious stones which are often washed ashore.
Instead, he stumbled upon an ancient axe which could be up to 450,000 years old and may change our understanding of Scottish history. ''

CV, sorry to have been so long in making this reply, certain things beyond my control led to my absence.

I would like to make a reply to your post concerning one of the greatest archaeologists of our times. That was, of course, Petrie!

I just wondered about the strangness of his second middle name.

Was he given the name at birth?, (Flinders)! If so, his family surely had some premonitions of his ultimate fame.

This word or name "flinders", seems to mean something similar to "tatters, pieces, debris", etc.

Please see;

http://www.dictionary30.com/meaning/flinders

Some times truth is "stranger than fiction?" And he sure did "dish" out the results! Smile!

''Egypt's antiquities minister, whose trademark Indiana Jones hat made him one the country's best known figures around the world, was fired Sunday after months of pressure from critics who attacked his credibility and accused him of having been too close to the regime of ousted President Hosni Mubarak.
Zahi Hawass, long chided as publicity loving and short on scientific knowledge, lost his job along with about a dozen other ministers in a Cabinet reshuffle meant to ease pressure from protesters seeking to purge remnants of Mubarak's regime.''

The riddle of the Syriac double dot: The world's earliest question mark
Smile
 
Question for a question mark.....lol.
 
(PhysOrg.com) -- Cambridge University manuscript specialist, Dr. Chip Coakley has identified what may be the world’s earliest example of a question mark. The symbol in question is two dots, one above the other, similar in appearance to a colon, rather than the familiar squiggle of the modern question mark. The double dot symbol appears in Syriac manuscripts of the Bible dating back to the fifth century.
