Response to Ichingcarpenter (Reply #4)

5. Astral archaeology is pretty interesting stuff.

We know that early astronomers were very knowledgeable about the skies, and many sites around the world were oriented to mark astral events. I'm not quite ready to take the big Von Daniken leap, though.

This site is particularly exciting due to it's antiquity, and has much left yet to tell us, or perhaps many more questions to raise. I'm generally against fully excavating sites that aren't endangered, so that we can bring new techniques to bear in their study as we develop them, but this one needs to get dug.
