Interesting items found with him, but I find it sad that we're still robbing and desecrating graves.

his is an important find as to a specific area and its culture, the unusual find as to the importance of a
warrior / chief and how he was revered in his treatment of the burial site. 2,200 years ago before Christ,
before the medieval times.

Enjoyed the photos and a look into the oast.

Ty, Marty.
