    Mysteries of archaeology: These are found everywhere: e.g. how the Anglo-Saxon church at Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire, was carved back from the surface, how they put the massive top stone on the cromlech at Pentre Ifan, Pembrokeshire, why Dark Age carved crosses of great complexity, but almost no stone churches of the period. Not to mention Stonehenge! We must not assume that the limestone was sourced at Gizeh – and we can’t argue from silence, so no wonder if copper tools were not found locally! Use of the adjective “early” argues a view of human civilisation as progress from primitive to sophisticated technologies – but technologies can be lost as well as found. Nobody seems to read Latin any more, for instance, but libraries and libraries of codices in Latin – lost to most of the world’s educated. As for knowledge of Holy Scripture – look round an old graveyard and see how the ordinary folk of 150 years ago knew chapter and verse we’ve never ourselves come across! Need i give more examples of good knowledge lost? The Pyramids of Africa are not dubbed a Wonder of the World for nothing – and we can bet there’s a lot more of the wonderful and inexplicable to come! Start without pre-conceived notions to produce conclusions from empirical evidence, and you don’t have to de-construct “current theories” every 50 years, as seems to be the practice in academia in all too many disciplines!
