Gods, Graves, Glyphs (alpha order)
$50,000 does sound like a lowball figure.I assume they'll eventually sell,but what assurances could the buyers give that the artifacts would be safe?Any idea how many Cossaks are still in Russia?
The Cossacks fled with their possessions and now others think that they know best what to do with them?
Oh, this is that Russian Orthodox community near Vineland, that we heard about last year, where the last priest, or whatever they call their head of the church, died and his wife and daughters refused to surrender the control of the church, saying mass, themselves.
I should have known that there was more than religion involved in this story.
