No worries... as a student of archeology, it's especially fascinating to me seeing these old artifacts like this. (my uncle was Ridge Whiteman... go ahead and Google him, and you get my own interests)

Of course, my own studies (seeing how I write for a living) are the stories of the ancient world... folk tales, mythology... and studying the similarities between cross cultural stories, in relation to the trade routes of the ancient world (remember, you need tin to make bronze, and the Bronze Age had to get their tin from somewhere... even the ancients had trade)

Haha, snap, I studied archaeology at college. My professor at one point was Colin Renfrew. :D Seeing the Gokstad ship up close instead of in my textbooks was amazing. The trade between ancient civilisations was so much more extensive and convoluted than some people imagine/believe :aww: I love discovering things like that - went to Colombia last year and studied some ruins there (San Agustin), and they found some plant matter and other things that previously had been thought only available in BC Egypt. :aww: I love contradictments like that.

Heh... yeah, and they also found traces of cocaine and nicotine in the bones of a 4000 year old Mummy years ago, and simply wrote it off as "modern contamination"... it challenged too many beliefs, so they refused to carbon date the elements they found, and gave that excuse to justify it, even though it is very unlikely that anyone working on it could have contaminated the bone structure itself.
