This just always interests me. I have often thought the ancient world was more advanced than we are taught now a days. As much as I want to believe in ancient aliens, I just can't. Humans are ingenious, we can adapt and overcome when we put our minds to it!

This is awesome stuff--"Forged in Fire" has become a new obsession of mine, and I really loved working with metal back in my sculpture classes in art school.

That mold for the spear tips is a really cool find...thanks for sharing this!

ETA: And yes, I also believe that our current belief system surround the capabilities of ancient man are very flawed and insulting.

Thats really cool, and it says most of the food and ore was imported, meaning its more of a centralised authority? Probably some trade hub or control centre given the location

Nice to see that history changes! I love when more questions come from not accepting answers!

Does anybody else think that pyramids were the Pre-G network of yesteryear like I do?
