Re: Carthage Memory

Post by billd89 »

c.1983, as a teen I went on an archaeological dig in Carthage, excavating a "Paleo-Christian basilica."

Our finds were decidedly unimpressive. I would say DULL.

One evening, walking home from the lacklustre site, the local sewer guys in a trench on Rue Eshmoun off R. Tite Live had dug up and were offering massive chunks of quite beautiful mosaic for sale. On the street.

It was abit absurd, really. But they had to lay that pipe, and they enjoyed showing off to the trail of sweaty disappointed archaeologist wannabes what we'd never find ...

Really Unlucky! Bad Tourist.
