ARCHAEOLOGY FIELD-TRIP JANUARY 29TH 3011 PART I

ARCHAEOLOGY   FIELD-TRIP  JANUARY  29  TH   3011 - PART  I

In this windy coastal location the interesting thing is that 
1000 years ago this unlikely spot  was a huge city.
Where we see the forests and  swamps now -
Was a  large city which we’ve  called simply   Bayville.
Nature has reclaimed  it,  as it has all ancient civilizations.

Last month we looked at the Aztec  and Mayan cities.   
This  month  we have come further north
And we are examining   the Euro-latin  civilization
Which came to  an abrupt end  
About 1000 years ago, for unknown reasons;
Although evidence suggests that there was 
A climatic change which gradually 
Turned fertile farmlands hereabouts  into deserts,
And there was a series of devastating earthquakes
Which hit the city each year for  several  years.
