Re: [ancient_waterways_society] Re: Top 10 Lost Civilizations (sent earlier by Steve Steigerwald)
- these guys have a point. it did sound like Time/Life pop sci. I mean we are living with Roman/Greco thought, the egyptians are pretty well located, Aztecs knew nothing of Teotihuacan, underwater is a whole new category world wide, and i am much more excited about the Moche than the short term Incas. Anyone's list is up for fame or distain. merely a starting point from which the epistemological argument starts. chb

I agree with all your additions and I would also add Megalithic culture, Ankhor Wat, Baalbek, Mississippian, Indus, "un-named" Ohio Valley lithic forts culture, Solutriaen and Lake Geneva (Swiss) cultures.
Volumes could be written regarding what we don't know about these cultures.
