Six children were found in paired graves to the north, east and west of the temple, and two were footless, as though amputated, the lead archaeologist, Carlos Wester, said in a statement. The placement led the researchers to speculate that the children had been sacrificed as ceremonial “guardians” of tombs.

A team of archaeologists is about to resume work at the Bronze Age stone circles known as The Hurlers on Bodmin Moor. The excavation, part of the Heritage Lottery Fund-supported Reading the Hurlers project, aims to learn more about a site that was identified by geo-physics in the early 1990s.
Geomorphology is the study of the physical features of the earth and its relation to its geological structure. A unique example of a geomorphic feature or geoglyph is the Badlands Guardian, also called the Medicine Indian Head. This geoglyph is located 62 km east of Medicine Hat, Alberta, near the village of Walsh. It is a geological marvel, approximately one half km across, facing west and can only be seen from the air. The geoglyph appears to form a perfect head of an Indian wearing a traditional headdress. The geoglyph was first discovered in 2006 by Lynn Hickox, while using Google Earth. Local residents of Walsh were not even aware of its presence.

Since the pillars of Göbekli Tepe have been unearthed and their consequential temporality assigned, the voices of esoteric intermediaries with ancient-kind have been amplified.
