It never ceases to amaze me on what we continue to find from our past. I saw this piece on Fox Sci/Tech. The detail on the medallion in the 2nd photos-for that time period-amazing:
Link to story:

Some of my highlights (2 of 54) :

Homo Floresiensis Skull: A researcher holds a skull of a Homo floresiensis in Indonesia. The race of hobbit-like creatures may once have existed on the remote island of Flores, where an international team is trying to shed light on the fossilized 18,000-year-old skeleton of a dwarf cavewoman whose discovery in 2003 was an international sensation.

Mycenaean Warrior Medallion: Archeologists discovered the remains of a high priestess and her three female protegees at an ancient necropolis in Greece -- a discovery that can shed light on the early ages. Amid the jewels was a war medallion, another sacred adornment found at the tomb of the priestesses.

I find it hard to believe no one commented on the Hobbit like species thing.

Now come on. Am I the only one that thinks that is pretty cool/awesome?

yeah it is pretty cool, i wonder how old that medallion is and what the meaning behind it is.

No, you aren't the only one.

One of my biggest regret in life is that I didn't become an archaeologist.

I rather be the one looking for artifacts rather than reading about. IMO, there is a lot more stuff yet to be discovered.

Yeah that gold medallion is amazing, good thing the people that found it didnt melt it down for profit.
