Want to go on an archaeological dig?

Cole's Hill Cemetery, Plymouth, MassachusettsIf you could have a chance to go on an archaeological dig in your hometown, where would you go? 
I have thought about this. Since I live in Massachusetts, I would choose Cole’s Hill, this is the burial grounds where many of the pilgrims were buried.
The winter of 1620-1621 was severe. It was extremely cold and snowy. The Pilgrims lost half their number. They didn't want the Indians to see how great their losses had been throughout that harsh first winter, so the Pilgrims secretly buried their dead on Cole’s Hill.
For my archeological dig, I would make a grid over the entire cemetery, then collect artifacts. I would catalog each and eventually place them in the Pilgrim Hall Museum. I would hire a forensic anthropologist – like Temperance Brennen from the show, Bones – to analyze the cause of death in the Pilgrims.  My choice of Cole’s Hill for an archaeological dig would reveal much about the Pilgrims and how they lived their lives.

How about you? Where would you dig in your backyard?

Do you like the boo?

Today on my Facebook, I was posting different "ghost" costumes. Some were traditional and some just down right unique.

We have a fascination with ghost and other worldly non-dead. We like to go on ghost hunts, visit spooky places, take in a haunted house and play ghost in a grave yard.  We also like to watch about ghost on TV with shows like, "Ghost Hunters" and "Ghost Adventurers". Of course there are the movies like, "Ghost" and "Poltergeist".

Yes, we like out ghost!

Here is a short movie from YouTube of the most friendliest ghost on earth. Enjoy!

Crystal Skulls

Among some of the most interesting archaeological finds in the world are crystal skulls.
Most have been found in the regions of Mexico and Central America.
They are deemed to be thousands of years old and a wonderment of how they were actually carved.

Some people have surmised that they are proof of the ancient lost civilization of Atlantis. Others yet think they may be proof of alien existence.

In my book I write about a discovery of crystal skulls and how they work together to be a conduit for the ancients. Although fictional in my book, this is a real theory of the skulls.

The crystal skulls remain a controversy to this day as they have been deemed not as old as originally thought by some but some remain to say they are still thousands of years old. It is hard to date them and the truth is, no one knows for sure.

What do you think?

Did you know that mummies have not just been found in Egypt? That is right, they have been found in many different areas of the world.

Here is some proof.

Egyptian Disney Classic

Today on my Facebook page I shared some Egyptian costumes that I had found around the net.
I thought on my blog today I would share a Disney short cartoon from 1931. The music was fun and the characters funny. This is true Disney classic. Enjoy.
