Given the effort and detail put into the excavation and restoration, is it really possible Reisner, Hassan, et al could have missed something so obvious and amazing as 4500+yr old "geoplyme

This is an excellent quote from oddly the YouTube comments: When they first arrived, they had the Bible and we had the land. They said to us: close your eyes and pray. So we closed our eyes and prayed. When we opened our eyes, we had the Bible and they had the land. -- A tribal chieftain Thank you for your effort Steve.
