The New York Times has an article about how archeologists are unearthing findings that strengthen some people's claims to their land, while others dispute this. You'd think that the whole issue is rather farcical: why would ancient findings be relevant to the politics of the modern world, after all, aren't we rational pragmatists who can't be bothered by primordial myths and legends? But you'd be wrong. Apparently it does matter.
In China, by the way. Nothing to do with what you thought I was insinuating.
