|Archaeologists revise the destroyed site|
An excavator machine destroys a 6000 years old mámoa (
dolmen tumulus, usually with a dolmen inside) in the parish of Pinzás (Tomiño, Galicia). It is speculated that the vandals were searching for mythical treasury. In the past many dolmens were broken in and vandalized for similar reasons but this is the first case ever known, I think, to have been done with modern machinery for such a reason.
If anyone wonders, there’s no treasury in them. At least no treasury other than archaeological knowledge and the pride of a deeply rooted history.
