I've tried them, but they just don't stick. By the time I've reached the next chapter I forgot what the whole thing was about. It's annoying to constantly rewind the thing when I've missed a thing.
I went and made a webcomic...
Also western civilisation is largely christian based and both egyptians and greeks are big influences on christianity whereas the Moche and Scythias are not.
At the time archeology established itself as a science christianity still had a strong grip on science and western society so any discovery dealing with finds related even teniously to the bible would have more of an impact on western popular imagination than tribes that didn't ahve a big role in the bible.

Good point on the christianity aspect, and possibly timing as well. The Tutankhamun discovery certainly happened at a time where the discovery would be covered in many papers/radio and before they would get lost in a sea of too much information. Mind you, I'm pretty sure that any discovery the size and richness of Tutankhamun's would probably get that coverage.
Pity though, Scythian and Moche art is amazing.

Anyway, I'm stuffed. Tonight was the Evening with the Masters, a fundraiser here in Wilmington for Meals on Wheels. I volunteered for a couple hours then got to sample all the food and drink. Though I actually didn't have anything to drink.
omg, I am so on creativity overload right now it'll be a relief just to finish one project.. .
anyone happen to know where I could get myself cloned?
Suck it, Flyers fans.
I have to wonder if such a fantastic discovery is just an elaborate scam to get more money though- like it could be a made-up treasure or something just to get the cash flowing and jobs created.... but if it really does exist and is discovered in good shape then this could potentially change a ton of perceptions. Tutankhamun's tomb discovery came at a time when popular culture hadn't yet fallen in love with Egypt.. you could say that discovery and exploitation started it and not be wrong, I think. With this discovery, people already have lots of preconcieved notions about how things were and they are likely to not welcome the discovery with such enthusiasm, which is really a shame, because Tutankhamun was not very important in the grander scheme when he was alive, but Cleopatra was infinitely more significant.
