Monumental change

Monumental change | Archaeology DSODE | Scoop.it
ON a dusty Mesopotamian hilltop, site of the world's most spectacular dig, archeologists are scurrying about with cameras, sketchbooks and trowels. I'm among a small crowd of onlookers, pinching myself at the phenomenon that is Gobekli Tepe.

21NR9::Anatomy of a Dig.

This is a 1983 film of an Archeological Dig in the Red River Valley of the Canning Site in Norman County Minnesota. The video is only available in the Minnes...
Graeme Hosken's insight:

Video starts off a little strangely but becomes 'norma; by the three minute mark. From 1983 so a little dated in fashions!

No More Noh Mul? Contractor Bulldozes Mayan Temple

No More Noh Mul? Contractor Bulldozes Mayan Temple | Archaeology DSODE | Scoop.it

A major Mayan Monument had been bulldozed for roadfill aggregate. 7news went to Orange Walk District, near the northern district boundary to find out that Noh Mul – or at least a large part of it – is no more. It’s a stunning development – and Jules Vasquez reports.

 

Jules Vasquez reporting
Noh Mul. it’s name means the Big Hill but it’s not so big any more, this once towering and stout ceremonial center in San Jose/San Pablo has been whittled down to a narrow core by excavators and bulldozers. Whodunnit? Contractors who’re using the rich gravel and limestone content to fill roads in nearby Douglas Village.

 

Now, this was the main temple, the ceremonial center for Noh Mul, at about 20 metres among the tallest buildings in Northern Belize - and it’s not centuries old, it’s millennia, thousands of years old and the thought that it’s rich limestone bricks cut with stone tools in the BC era, the thought that this could be used for road fill is a manifest outrage and a particularly painful one for these Archeologists who were called out to the area today. We were there when they first arrived and got their initial emotional reaction:

 

Dr. Allan Moore - Archaeologist, Institute of Archaeology
"This is one of the largest bulding in Norther Belize. I am appalled! I was hoping that when I was driving up from the main San Juan road that it would not be this one but when I got closer I couldn't believe it when I saw all the trucks. This is an incredible destruction."
