Thank you, as always, for sharing these reports. This and the previous about the prehistoric pooch are fascinating. Really appreciate it.

Been reading Burl's Stonehenge recently, where he talks about how the first farmers came over to Britain in the 5th millennium crossing the English channel, and what a perilous trek that must have been, making one wonder what inspired such a risk. Indeed, the recent reports on the spread of megalithic culture along the Atlantic coast by boat underlines what fearless seafarers these men and women were. And I've often wondered about how on earth the first people settled Easter Island - a blip in a vast ocean far from the mainland. Anyway, good idea the discoverers have of not revealing the site of the Bronze Age shipwreck so as to preserve its cargo for a museum.
