Roman settlement uncovered in US
Press TV IR ^ | Thu, 04 Sep 2008 13:16:36 GMT

Posted on 09/04/2008 10:03:48 AM PDT by Perdogg

An American archaeologist has uncovered the foundations for a Roman settlement on east Cleveland coast in the United States.

According to a report in The Northern Echo, archaeologist Steve Sherlock has found a 1,600 year-old site for creating jet jewellery, with the help of volunteers from the Teesside Archaeological Society.

Sherlock's latest discovery comes a year ater he uncovered evidence of Anglo-Saxon royalty in a farmer's fields near Loftus.

Aerial photographs first guided Sherlock's Iron Age research project to the location in 2004, showing evidence of an Iron Age enclosure. Then last year, the site revealed 109 Anglo Saxon graves.

Doh! Cleveland doesn’t have an east coast right? Just a Northwestern one.

LOL. It’s got a lake shore. I’ve only been around Cleveland on the interstate. The traffic was loony. Made Mass Pike drivers look like pikers.

Yep, this one belongs right next to the Soviet broadcast on the US invading GrEnada using a map of Spain, showing GrAnada which of course is not on the coast.

Yeah, but it’s wrong. None of the places mentioned in the article are in Cleveland, Ohio. Redcar? Loftus? In fact, the two Clevelands are sister cities. The Redcar band from England has come to Ohio in the past.

Perhaps they meant the satellite photography analysis was done in the U.S.

Either that, or it was just another typical journalist’s goof.

The headline on the linked story clearly says “US”.

That being said, I think the Iranian news service (I guess someone didn’t notice the source) is just plain stupid.

Also notice - there is a poll on the same page - “In your opinion, which politicians can best govern the United States?”

It includes “John McCain and Sarah Palin” 15%, “Barack Obama and Joe Biden” 46%,
and “Neither Democrats nor Republicans can serve the will of the American people” at 39%

Sure, but someone needs to ask Obama for his opinion
on it anyway.

He’d probably suggest reparations for the Romans,
if he knew what a Roman was.

This was not the first time that the river had caught on fire. Fires occurred on the Cuyahoga River in 1868, 1883, 1887, 1912, 1922, 1936, 1941, 1948, and in 1952. The 1952 fire caused over 1.5 million dollars in damage.

On August 1, 1969, Time magazine reported on the fire and on the condition of the Cuyahoga River. The magazine stated:

Some River! Chocolate-brown, oily, bubbling with subsurface gases, it oozes rather than flows. “Anyone who falls into the Cuyahoga does not drown,” Cleveland’s citizens joke grimly. “He decays”. . . The Federal Water Pollution Control Administration dryly notes: “The lower Cuyahoga has no visible signs of life, not even low forms such as leeches and sludge worms that usually thrive on wastes.” It is also — literally — a fire hazard.
