This is an absolutely amazing discovery!  When I was younger I wanted to be a paleontologist, archaeologist, a professor of English, a world famous writer, and a Newberry Award winner.  Yes, lots of ambition for a six year old!

Reading articles like this gives me such a thrill because there is more knowledge about a stage of human history we know little about, overall, and usable knowledge for world building.  A writer who doesn’t read, follow some form of science, or isn’t curious about how people live/lived have stories of the dry variety, in my humble opinion.

About Henrietta Handy

I have returned home to the mountains. No more am I "a mountain-girl far from home." Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 2 1/2, I understand pain, fatigue, laughter, joy, and love all while on crutches and in wheelchairs. This blog is just about me, mostly the writing side, but there are forays into so many different topics. I am married to a wonderful husband who puts up with my writing, knitting, yarn, with the love of a saint. We have fur babies, and one cat who rules us all.
