Copan Archeological Museum, Bat formerly over entrance to Bat Temple

Good morning, as BoxTurtle is ‘dead in the water’, this will be just temporary so we can comment at Over Easy.

For your viewing interest, an interactive dig in Brooklyn, New York goes like this;

 A story about a family that lived in the same house for nearly 300 years and freed their slaves two full decades before New York abolished slavery, in stark contrast to prevailing attitudes. If the Lotts were in the avant-garde of the abolitionist movement, did their philosophy affect the treatment of their servants and slaves? Who were these people? How did they live? For clues, archaeologists from Brooklyn College are digging through documents and have found themselves stymied. The Brooklyn Historical Society archives are closed: there’s no getting in or out. What foul plan is this? Excavation is promising, but raises as many questions as it answers. We need you on the case. You have until June to immerse yourself in all things Lott before excavation begins. Should you choose to accept this mission, click here.

Wishing BT well, in getting his post up when he gets through the difficulties.
