Quote of the Day
As the archaeology of our thought easily shows, man is an invention of recent date. And one perhaps nearing its end.
One of the things that I love to do is travel around the world and look at archaeological sites.

Science Fiction is not just about the future of space ships travelling to other planets, it is fiction based on science and I am using science as my basis for my fiction, but it's the science of prehistory - palaeontology and archaeology - rather than astronomy or physics.
Jean M. Auel

We are opening up an enormous new era in archaeology. Time capsules in the deep oceans.
John F. Lehman, Jr.
