You clearly didn't attend the lectures by Dr Henry Jones Jnr on this issue, don't worry they are available on DVD now (just avoid the forth one!)

Blimey PP is spot on, but this is a very difficult philosophy to live by and I suspect PP may have a few "truths" they belive in.

Yep, I agree with you and PP.

There is no Truth.............there is no spoon.

Only questions.

Each 'answer' (e.g. the cemetery was Roman) provides several more questions...........what does Roman mean? Which century during the Roman period? Who were the people? How long were people buried for.............or even deeper, how accurate was the dating? Was it from typological pottery sequences? Was it from absolute dating? Was the material dated residual, curated...and on and on and on.........

and, topically, where were the people from? - will settle for the coin hoards for the dating bit...but - had they been curated?... Big Grin
