Very interesting can understand why the people of this region do not want to share their history on a global basis at this point in time it belongs to them not the world. Allow them to make a choice after so many years of having no choice. After time they will ask for help maybe because of technology or the need of worldwide experts.

Fascinating, so very intriguing. The past is often filled with wonders. Looks like a warm spot as well, much better than the snowstorm headed our way. Spring lost its way. Wonder what types of animal life exists in the area?
