    Greek Burials, and Artifacts found during Pipeline Construction



    More than 400 archaeological finds have been discovered along the route dug out for the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline (TAP), while another seven large-scale projects are ongoing in regions traversed by the dig, it was revealed this week.


    The multiple findings that have been unearthed — both movable and immovable — include burial grounds or individual tombs, some of which contain grave goods, parts of settlements and architectural remains.

    In addition, many movable findings have also been located (pottery, jewelry, coins), dating from the prehistoric to the post-Byzantine period.


    Archaeologists meeting at at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki discussed the initial findings of their excavation research, noting that archaeological excavations in Greece would have almost completely ceased, if it were not for funds from public or private works.


    “We are collaborating closely with the Ministry of Culture and Sports, as well as the local Ephorates of Antiquities, for the protection and promotion of the rich Greek cultural heritage,” TAP’s country manager for Greece, Katerina Papalexandri, said.

    Hopefully we can get some ancient DNA out of those burials.

    The TAP has been uncovering so many sites, its unbelievable, and yet almost no DNA is being reported out of it, seriously I wonder what is happening
    in these circles.

    For example, in Turan, Albania they found 120 skeletons in a burial some dating back to 700 BC.

    "As we have already stressed, the mass evacuation of the Albanians from their triangle is the only effective course we can take. In order to relocate a whole people, the first prerequisite is the creation of a suitable psychosis. This can be done in various ways." - Vaso Cubrilovic

    It's pretty cheap to test them too, at least it is for the Reich Lab. Hopefully, these discoveries will yield some genetic insights.

    Greek Burials, and Artifacts found during Pipeline Construction

    There is a big controversy about the TAP ( Trans Adriatic Pipeline ). The NO TAP Movement in San Foca, a Marina of Melendugno ( Lecce ) Puglia, is very Strong and Active.
    The Locals (many are friends of mine), are fighting back REALLY HARD against the Gas Pipelines that will connect to Albanian pipelines at other side of the Adriatic Sea. It’s also a very political issue. It’s one of the Reasons that M5S won big in Puglia.
    Personally I’m not opposed to the TAP.



    “In Italy the TAP requires construction of a gas terminal in a historical olive grove in the countryside near the Apulian town of Melendugno”

    Divine blindness conquers them
    Hybris (abuse, opprombium) is born
    Nemesis and punishment follows.
