Is this not the most stunning thing you’ve ever seen?

As you may have heard, archaeologists recently discovered this late Neolithic double-burial. According to the news reports, double-burials from that time period were rare. Huggers, non-existent. Archaeologists are removing them all in one piece to preserve their position, and hope to learn something new about Stone Age society in the process.

Well, you know me. I’ve been a paleoanthropology buff ever since I read Clan of the Cave Bear as a teenager. As you can imagine, I’m a little bit excited about this find. “Steve, Steve, Steve! C’mere, you have to see this,” I shouted, waving and flapping the newspaper at him.

Steve took a look. He was silent for a moment, and then he said softly, “They should just cover them right back up.”
