It was late Sunday evening when I noticed missed calls and text messages on my cell phone. I was amazed at the news I received and walked downtown to see it for my own eyes. What was happening?

As an archaeologist, I never pictured excavations to be carried out in front of one of our regular hanging out spots!!!

Hopefully, this attention will turn into greater research opportunities leading to a better understanding of this enigmatic civilisation.
