Archeology 201 Guidelines

If Indiana Jones happened to be a member of Tweb, this is where he'd hang out.

Welcome to the Archeology forum. Were you out doing some gardening and dug up a relic from the distant past? would you like to know more about Ancient Egypt? Did you think Memphis was actually a city in Tennessee?

Well, for the answers to those and other burning questions you've found the right digs.

Our forum rules apply here too, if you haven't read them now is the time.

    There goes ancient sculptures that have survived several thousand years - dissolved into dust by the hammers of morons.

      Was thinking EGGzackly the same thing. And the response of the UN is.....
      "Neighbor, how long has it been since you’ve had a big, thick, steaming bowl of Wolf Brand Chili?”

          Actually it means "submission". I wonder why people tend to leave that fact out.

            I was gonna point that out, but I think he was being facetious / sarcastic.

              Yeah, I know. Not everybody goes and looks at the actual definition though.

                  So....is there any other source for this? Trying to get a better picture of what's going on, but all the links I find source back to the APSA2011. The page linked has this bit: Al-Hasakah - Tell Ajaja : Illegal excavations 24.05.2014 which really doesn't make sense.


                  And...I'm not sure they'd be classified as 'morons'. Barring further context, it's not really a surprise that an extremist group would seek to destroy 'idols'.
                  I'm not here anymore.

                    "When the Western world accepted Christianity, Caesar conquered; and the received text of Western theology was edited by his lawyers…. The brief Galilean vision of humility flickered throughout the ages, uncertainly…. But the deeper idolatry, of the fashioning of God in the image of the Egyptian, Persian, and Roman imperial rulers, was retained. The Church gave unto God the attributes which belonged exclusively to Caesar."

                      According to that, the looters didn't do the destroying. I'm not buying it on the basis of what is available on that site.
