Thanks for posting this fascinating article. At the time of the invasion of Iraq, a US general (can't remember his name) commented that 'these people have nothing, no McDonadls, no shopping malls'. I hope this selfsame general will read this article and ponder the meaning of the word 'civilisation' a bit more.

Oh that's so exciting..! I have been facinated with ancient civilisations since I was 8 years old and I am always wide eyed when I read some new site has this much promise ...Kingdom's rise and kingdom's fall and rarely do we get to glimpse how it all happened and people lived and loved and thought and died......
Thanks Marty for sharing this hidden treasure..........!
