Post Archeology
I wanted to start a thread on general archeology. I try not to fall prey to click-bait, but sometimes I can't help it. Especially when it comes to articles about archeology. A while back I learned about Gobekli Tepe:

Please add links to articles, if you want. I'll add things from time to time.

Brazil's National Museum burned. Bad, bad, bad.

Why Brazil's Museum Fire Matters

"This week, as the National Museum of Brazil filled with fire, the world learned about its vast holdings: over 20 million pieces of our history since the Pleistocene. These items—most of them now destroyed—included sarcophagi from Egypt, frescos from Pompeii, one of the oldest human skeletons found in Americas, and the largest assemblage of Brazilian archaeological material in the world. Collectively the individual items formed collections resulting from 200 years of curation, research, and care by people whose work illuminated and preserved our past. In the wake of the conflagration, there is dawning despair about further losses that can’t be counted or measured…the loss of knowledge that still hasn't been explored...."

Wreck of Captain Cook's HMS Endeavour 'discovered' off US coast

The possible discovery of HMS Endeavour off the east coast of the US has been hailed as a “hugely significant moment” in Australian history, but researchers have warned they are yet to “definitively” confirm whether the wreck has been located.

On Wednesday Fairfax Media reported archaeologists from the Rhode Island Marine Archaeology Project, or Rimap, had pinpointed the final resting place of the famous vessel in which Captain James Cook reached Australia in 1770.

The ship was later used by the British royal navy in the American war of independence and was eventually scuttled with a dozen other vessels off Newport, Rhode Island in 1778....

Post Re: Archeology
The 250th anniversary of Cook's departure from the UK on his voyage to discover Australia and prove the distance from the earth to the sun was this year.

James Cook was a magnificent hero of the age of enlightenment. Unsurprisingly, the many critics who reject the political legitimacy of the Australian state have conspired to ignore his astounding achievements.
