6. I can only imagine the kind of mentality that believes it's okay to bury gold.

In today's world, that would be sacrilege, unimaginable, or explained only by insanity. What was the actual valuation of gold to them... something nice to have or something more valuable than that? I don't think we can just project our own thoughts on this ancient culture.

I wonder also just how willing those people were who were sacrificed. That sounds incredibly insane to me too.

I hope the archeology team took lots of pictures of exactly how they found it in its undisturbed state.
