It's too quiet here...

Here's where you get off topic and off center....Keep it nice, keep it clean, no sniping, no flaming. After that, anything goes.

Good grief, I'm going to sit here and have something to eat, read a few papers, and proceed to consume adult beverages. Given enough time my responses may prove to be entertaining, we'll see.

edit: What happened to cause "Most users ever online was 146 on Wed Jun 27, 2007 7:20 pm"?

edit#2: Does anyone have a copy of:

Archaeological investigations of site 44SX202, Cactus Hill, Sussex County, Virginia (Nottoway River Survey Archaeological Research report)
by Joseph M McAvoy (Paperback) 1976

that I could borrow long enough to scan for a pdf?



Wasn't that the date of the international announcement concerning the positive identification of Hatshepsut's mummy?
I can't remember, I've slept since then... :?

Edit: Yup, it was...

I found several references to McAvoy's paper online but not the paper itself. 1976 predates the web by a little too much, I guess.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

I have every paper and book that is available except the main one. The book is 181 pages including appendices, and it is not available anywhere; Amazon, Abebooks, Biblio, etc. Anybook, which charges outrageous prices, does not even offer it. The closest library that may have it, it is in their "stacks", is five hours away with no guarantee that it could be retrieved. So, this is why I ask.

Thanks Min.

"McAvoy, Joseph M.

There is a web site for the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.

Couldn't hurt to ask.

Not only that but it predates its publication by twenty years. Sorry, I fixed my typo, it is 1996 not 1976.

Hey Min, you up yet?

It has been quiet, but I finished reading "The Human Ecology of Beringia" by Hoffecker and Elias. They convinced me of two things, other than bison, mega mammals were absent, and no one walked through the "ice free corridor" to the south, but they were coming up from there during the latest Pleistocene.

I am now reading "Folsum" by D.J. Meltzer, I like his writing style and the references will keep me busy for a long time.

May I suggest two possible subjects for discussion?

J.J. Hester

or

F. H.H. Roberts

If anyone is interested.
