    When my wife heard your remarks about the burial practices, she said that it reminded her of Chinese/Taiwanese Feng Shuii burial practices.

  2. I’m coming late to your pod casts but I love them.

    I wanted to make one comment on the burnt mounds. You presented that they could be for cooking but then discounted it. To paraphrase “There were perfectly good fires for roasting.” Fires expend lots of fuel at high temperatures which is fine for some tender meats. A better use of energy and/or a way to use parts of an animal that would otherwise have been too tough to chew would be to find a slower, lower temperature way of cooking. Many cultures still use this type of clay pit such as Mexican barbacoa and Cuban pig roasts. This is the very essence of BBQ versus grilling methods.
