Sunday, February 25, 2007. [Yes, we're running a couple days late, but I thought these episodes were worth posting anyway.]
Twenty years ago today, police in Peru got an archaeologist out of bed to protect a tomb from grave robbers. That tomb, of an ancient warrior priest called the Lord of Sipan, is still being explored and its artifacts (such as the ornament pictured to the right) recovered to this day.
I also talk a little about how I developed an interest in archaeology and the ancient cultures of Central and South America.
Today's episode music is from "Forgotten Man," by David Henderson. Theme music composed and performed by Marc Rose.
