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 am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.
