    Default Mysterious 4,000-year-old lost city discovered



    For my friend helicon64 (Michael) and all of you interested in archeology. A team of French archaeologists has located the remains of a lost ancient city in Iraqi Kurdistan. It's existence is of no surprise to me, but these new findings are very interesting. About 10 or 12 years ago, we purchased this fabulous DVD from the History/Discovery store in Orlando. Archeologist David Rohl starts his his search for the Garden east of Eden.

    He starts with the Biblical references, and then fills in the last parts of the puzzle from a Codex from an emissary's record about a travel to Aeden. He ended up on the Zagros mountain area near Aratu (modern day Ararat). The Kurdish people have existed for a very long time.
    Here is the latest story of this 4,000 year old Kurdish city of Kunara and the recent excavations, at:

    I hope that all off you enjoy this, and the kindest of regards.
