Not this one by the looks of it. Predated by a Greek road built beneath it. Just wait for the Fyrom nuts to say it led to Skopje.

There are so many things that have been buried. It makes me wonder where all the dirt came from that buries these cities.
I just have a questioning mind.

It comes from all those ashtrays emptied at road-crossings.

They used to say the same about London, a fact that will prove true next month with the 2012 Olympic Games on Friday, July 27, 2012. Yippee!!

For your questing mind,..

The earth eternally continues to gain external mass. Galactic dust and debris rains down all the time. Some of which is so minute it goes undetected to human observation. Planetary weather systems using water and wind continues to move and redistribute earth's loose topsoil.
You can see this process speeded up in huge area of loose topsoil. Eygpt and Africa are cornicopias of covered artifacts evidencing buried civilizations. One day, all the civilizations of man will be buried. Long after we cease to walk the earth, our bones and bricks will be harbored together beneath it.

Part history, part legend. Daniel Boone is history, but he's a big part legend also. Things get exaggerated and cloaked by mythology surrounding history.

Remember the TV show theme, "Daniel Boone was a man,.. a big man,.."? We know that is wrong. Boone was rather small. Our heros of history move from pure history to legend status.
