I am inserting an article hopefully some of you besides AWS member Jim Scherz saw on new member Romeo Hristov's web page that I'd posted from his Atlantic Conference speaker Profile: http://www.unm.edu/~rhristov/
I am getting a lot of off-line emails of nonmember interested persons from some interesting backgrounds. The following article, prepared for a 2001 meeting of an archaeological society in New Orleans, "The Roman Head from Tecaxic-Calixtlahuaca, Mexico: A Review of the evidence " ccomes from an earlier work, "Mesoamerican Evidence of Pre-Columbian Transoceanic Contacts, Ancient Mesoamerica", which I don't have a link for. But the title wonderfully applies as a fine iintroduction to this fine man whom I was honored to get to coffee with at the Halifax conference a few months ago.
I am dashing out the door here, but since I will be doing some 12 hour nights again aout of town until the next few days with only a chance to briefly check Posts and monitor this web site, I wanted to put in a brief reply from one of the founders here, Jim Scherz, who I am hearing from others is getting more adept at emailing. And has so much good stuff to share when he gets more high tech, computer-wise. I am looking for a free course, too, as do not even know how to do a web site, photos, etc.
Ted sent something helpful to Jim, and hopefully some of you can help Judi Rudibusch and a few of us learn to create "Links" of your work, so this stuff can be more easily shared. There is not one of you, even quiet members here, that is not, to me a very viable part of the synergy of this small but wonderfully non-competitve global Internet group. Which includes an amicable assortment of people from all walks of life, education, with roots and cultural ties from all over the world. Romeo, I hope you have been able to find within our avalance of previous posts at this site links to some of Dr. Scherz' papers and also Vince Barrows' Historiography of Cahokia (Monks Mound) essay and remarkable web site w/PreColumbian tablets, etc. and cateloguing. If not able to access these, I will be happy to send it to you. Also new member, David Jones, and anyone else here who might want to find information from your archived posts here. I encourage everyone to put/add appropriate titles to your posts on new subjects of interest, yet keep the supporting Replies stacking up beneath each other's for easy access.
I do have many "links' of member here, or Google Search information on home pages, profiles, articles, books, etc. from those who have them here. Many Ancietn Waterways Society posts are showing up on various worldwide Searches of some of your work, names here! Keeps us walking, talking with integrity when we realize that almost everything we say online can be accessed worldwide. If one is paranoid, that might be a terrifying thing. Thes integrity, courage, power, 'universal' love/global citizenry I see here and find at the roots of your work and Posts here does not seem to attract fear-based people who enjoy sabotaging the work or lives of others. This interesting and surprisingly humble group fits nicely within my International Peace Studies minor when I was in school.
Again. I am honored to be a support person here and affiliated with all of you. And those non memebers reading posts, too, and there may be more who have not emailed me. My apologies for my continuing lack of brevity and frequent typographical errors from always having too 'too much on my plate' in this world, figuretively and literally.
