    Brazil slave cemetery

    Interesting article(s) about a new found slave burial site. Particularly remarkable: strontium isotope analysis of teeth - I did not know of this.

    ngeso. Thanks for an interesting article. Does Spiegel have an English translation of their article?
    As for the charges against me, I am unconcerned. I am beyond their timid lying morality, and so I am beyond caring.

    Spiegel has an English language online edition, however that only carries a portion of the main site's content i.e. not everything is translated. Sometimes they will take a couple of days to upload the translation, so I'll keep checking throughout the week. Right now that article is not available in English. However, the Guardian piece is the same story, for the main.

    I'm surprised this is just now coming to light. When I was living in Brasil; folks would find graves from Recife all the way down to Porto Alegre. The coast has been riddled with old shallow graves due to the abundance of Senzalas in Pernambuco, Bahia, Rio, and Sao Paulo. With so much development going on in the region right now, hiding the countries dirty past from the rest of the world can no longer be done.

    I suspect some huge discoveries will be popping up in Brasil in the next few years for sure.
    Galaxy rays; Powerful!!! =D
