who have an insatiable thirst
for knowledge and a desire to
learn about the origin of the
human race, its social, cultural
and political evolution, the birth
and death of civilizations, the
rise and fall of mighty empires.
who enjoy the outdoors, love to
camp in woods, bathe in a stream,
cook in acamp fire, slumber under
the stars, awake to the singing
of the birds.
who love to trek through rugged
terrain, climb the slopes of jagged
hills, traverse scorching desert
sands, stomp through treacherous
marshy swamps. All this for a
quest, a search, a discovery,
to find answers to questions hitherto
unknown and to discover questions
Dunant in his book 'The Story
of Philosphy' has called philosphy
"That dear delight, when
the love for a modestly elusive
truth seems far greater incomparbly
than the ways of the flesh and
the dross of the world."
The same can be said about archaeology.
answers seem so close, almost
within reach, all that is required
is a little sifting of evidence
and there we are at the verge
of a great discovery. These discoveries
could well be yours. All that
it takes is some patience, perseverance,
application and of course dedication.
And all along its also a lot of
fun and exitement.
