More like 800 years old. It just took a very long time for us to find them.

Never trust a people that use so many "L"s, or that think "W" is a vowel.

So this was not rock, but some sort of compressed shale, easily eroded? Interesting. Also, how did they date this exactly? The article sucks.

They probably took it out for dinner and a spot of tea, and maybe a walk int he park. I can't imagine a lot of money was spent, archaeologists aren't exactly rolling in money
