    Is it just me or is it extremely rare to make such a find your first time out? I know I'm being a pessimist on this but I'm getting Piltdown vibes. Either that or this is one of the most untapped sources ever discovered.

    Anyone else?

    Well from what I know, Kenya has been a hotspot for nearly 40 yrs...trying to get in there and conduct research has been hard, due to the fact of rebels, vandals, theifs. I remember something I read back some time ago, back in the late 60's early 70's, some archeologists were raped of all theirs equipment and severly beaten. Somethign like that just sort of says Nah, lets go dig elsewhere, cause its not safe.

    Alot of Africa has unanswered mysteries, just cant seem to get in there with all the strife, disease, constant coups, theifs, bandits, etc.
