To subscribe to Explorator, send a blank email message to:

it is called explorator, i would [ost more of them but many do not meet board criteria. there are, for instance, many pieces about saving archeological sites in areas of the world that are currntly strife or war ridden.

it is a great little list, ireccomend it to all d.m.'s as an inspirational tool :)

As always, I appreciate the links. They are always thought provoking.

I'm still not sure the SA map couldn't be coincidence, but it is fascinating. One subject I don't know much about is trade in pre-Columbian South America.

this one has gottta be just a coincidence...

Why a coincidence? The technology to circumnavigate Sth Americ was available at the time and the Aztecs and Mayans held sway over huge areas either directly or indirectly (through trade and diplomacy etc)

plus if the people of Nazca can draw a gargantuan spider surely whoever did this map was quite capable of doing it.
