Native American burial ground, village site destroyed for luxury California homes
A 4,500-year-old Native American burial ground and village site was found in California, but the contents were eventually destroyed, reburied, and paved over for construction of multimillion-dollar homes, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.
Archaeologists say the 300-foot-long Coast Miwok site held 600 human burials as well as tools, rare hunting materials, musical instruments, game pieces, ritualistic stone objects, animal remains, the largest collection of bear bones found in a prehistoric site in the Bay Area, and even a ceremonial condor burial that suggested the bird was kept as a pet. The remnants were quietly examined and categorized but ultimately decimated and reburied at an undisclosed location, scientists say, ahead of construction on a $55 million home development in Larkspur, California.
"This was a site of considerable archaeological value," said Dwight Simons, a consulting archaeologist who assessed bones at the site. "My estimate of bones and fragments in the entire site was easily over a million, and probably more than that. It was staggering."

Every popular movement already carries with it the seeds of the revolutionary socialism: we must take part in it to ensure its growth. A clear and precise ideal of revolution is formulated only by an infinitesimal minority, and if we wait to take part in a struggle which appears exactly as we have imagined it in our minds—we shall wait forever. Don’t imitate the dogmatists who ask for the formula before anything else: the people carry the living revolution in their hearts, and we must fight and die with them. — Carlo Cafiero, 1875
I decided to take the time to draw something to celebrate SNOWPOCALYPSE 2014 HOTHLANTA. Luckily I was home safe with my space heater during the shenanigans.
After a lot of rain here in FL these baby frogs appeared. They eerily all faced the same direction.
