Prof. Harrison taught my 3rd year class in Near Eastern archaeology. I'm all excited for him - this is a big find, and he's a super nice guy.

Of course, you'd have that look also if you took a shovel to the ass

"The two pieces appear to have been ritually buried in the paved stone surface of the central passageway," Tayinat Project director Tim Harrison, a professor of archaeology at the University of Toronto, said in a statement.

The passageway and gates seems to have been destroyed in 738 B.C., when Assyrian forces conquered the Neo-Hittite city. The area then appears to have been paved over and turned into a courtyard.


"Ritually buried" or "Hey, dude, we really need to fill this hole with something. How about Bug-Eyes over there?"

I saw this and was going to post it, but couldn't think of anything funny for the headline. Not bad subby

Fascinating. Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't most other Mesopotamian depictions of humans have them wide-eyed?

Jesus McSordid: A "sheath" of wheat? They made condoms from cereal crops?


Glad I'm not the only one who saw that.

It's going on my list of words people who write for a living should know better than to confuse:
Cavalry/Calvary
Ordnance/Ordinance
Border/Boarder
Sheath/Sheaf
etc.

Only the ones created during the Age of Wonders.

Joking aside, that's awesome. Usually the eyes are long gone by the time the statue is found.

My name is Ozzymandius, King of Kings. Look upon my works, ye mighty, and despair! Nothing beside remains.

Not likey. The Muslims in Turkey tend to be very secular and protective of historic finds. Tourist dollars and such

As god is my witness, I thought Turkey jokes could fly.

Very cool for him indeed, and that class must have been fascinating.

All I can think of is Toad from Super Mario Bros 2. Man a 11ft Toad... now that would make for one heck of a sidekick for Mario.
