Good to see you back, Kevin!
I might agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!

Wow now that is a massive find. How come things like this never make the main news? I have always believed The stories of Solomon and Sheba to be myths, maybe I will be eating my hat!

Great to have you back Kevin 8)

I like this part of the article..

"An initial clue lay in a 20ft stone stele (or slab) carved with a sun and crescent moon,"

Not something one would come across every day while digging around in Ethiopia.. :sl: No flies on these Archaeologists, is there..? :cg

..And the story of the 9 foot cobra allegedly living behind the stone. . Brilliant . 8)
There's a time for everyone, if they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn.
