Obviously used in some kind of ritual...

+1, that's how all the archaeologists end up explaining things. They find a small figurine, "it must be a pagan religious figure!", when the most probable explanation is a parent made a toy doll for the kid to play with. Can't wait for them to start digging up Barbie dolls and Star Wars Action Figures... Every architecture project unearthed is a temple -- meanwhile our modern streets are filled with hotels, universities, restaurants, supermarkets, convenience stores, bars, and a church or two.

They found a bit of an ancient straightedge for making sure the neck was level before leveling and polishing iron frets...now if they can just find the truss rod.

Well, it's believed to be the bridge from the instrument. Spending £34k investigating a small scrap of wood seems like a lot of money to me. Still, even more intriguing is why, if they did have the guitar 2,500 years ago, they became better known for playing bagpipes.....:eek::eek::lol::lol:


I guarantee she is not holding the artifact like that. It's a copy of whatever they found.
