Introduction
Introduction The discipline of archaeology can open up the past to us in a way in which we can enter into a dialogue with our ancestors. There are many ways it can do this: stratigraphic excavation, pottery typology, socio-historic interpretation, etc. However, one thread running through this increasingly focused pursuit is that of dating the physical findings to a particular cultural timeline. This is crucial if we are to know, with as much certainty as is allowed, who we are speaking with. In...

To Look Up Into The Mountains And See The Steam Rolling From A Mountai
To look up into the mountains and see the steam rolling from a mountain stream on a cold winters morning is a beautiful sight. However, to look out over the horizon and see the white spray of salt water coming from the blow of a huge hump-back whale is much more exciting sight and a whole lot warmer. I lived in the mountains of Colorado for most of my childhood. The first time I had the opportunity to see the ocean was on a vacation to California, when I was about 15 years old.

Even Elephants Are Afraid Of Mice - A Creative Essay
Even Elephants are Afraid of Mice - A Creative Essay Ping! The sonar continued its never ending beat. Waves of powerful but invisible sound pounded the black ocean waters in a futile attempt to hear the enemy. A propeller, a turbine or even a cough were all that they needed to catch the mouse. A whisper of sound and the chase would begin. The mouse was no fool. It would not let out so much as a squeak to give the cat the thrill of the hunt. It would bide its time in the shadows of the deep blue ...
