Ancient Bones Found  May Confirm Chilling Legend – Hutton Pulitzer #GoXplrr

Archaeologists have made a sinister discovery at the top of a Greek mountain which might corroborate one of the darkest legends of antiquity.Excavations this summer on Mount Lykaion, once worshipped as the birthplace of the god Zeus, uncovered the 3,000-year-old skeleton of a teenager amid a mound of ashes built up over a millennium from sacrificed animals.Greece’s Culture Ministry said Wednesday that the skeleton, probably of an adolescent boy, was found in the heart of the 30-meter (100-foot) broad ash altar, next to a man-made stone platform.

Excavators say it’s too early to speculate on the nature of the teenager’s death but the discovery is remarkable because the remote Mount Lykaion was for centuries associated with the most nefarious of Greek cults: Ancient writers — including Plato — linked it with human sacrifice to Zeus, a practice which has very rarely been confirmed by archaeologists anywhere in the Greek world and never on mainland Greece.

    I like this work.. But the the problem .. In my country they try to hide everything about us.. I search about that alone . Between stones and rocks .. Find love Jeron and forms stones exotic .. Roman and Jewish cemeteries .. gained some science , knowledge and experience as a result of my research over the last 6 years and indiscriminate drilling .. I still longed to those days .. Thanks
