10323Re: [Precolumbian_Inscriptions] New host Digging for the Turth : Chachapoyas ...

Hope you have been well.
I liked Digging for the Truth since I first saw it.
what happened to Josh?
I saw the show on the Chachapoyas-seemed like a rehash
of earlier shows with the exception that the new host
was lost with a repelling rope and seemed to be a
"pretty boy" who had never been in the country a day
in his life.
I'll tune him out next episode if he comes across like
a lost city boy staggering in the woods.
Skull deformation practices might be linked to Adena
practices of similar nature that occurred in the Ohio
Just a thought.
