I and Pangur Bán, my cat
'Tis a like task we are at;
Hunting mice is his delight
Hunting words I sit all night.

Something tells me this watch isn't 400 years old. but if it was stuck in between the stones and over time, a chemical reaction between the metals in the stone and the metals in the ring may have fused to it's surface. Thus, the surface of the watch would be incorrectly dated by modern techniques because it would have trace amounts of the surrounding dirt on it's surface.

...and don't say time travel. Humans jump to conclusions so easily and it seems to happen more often lately with people not looking before they leap. Someone was climbing on the tomb or rain water washed it down into the tomb. As someone who hunts the shoreline for treasures, I have found many artifacts stuck in rocks and places that you never guess they could be. Time and Nature alter things beyond human comprehension.

...I forgot how I got here but everyone seems to be heading off in that direction. I hope someone brought food. I have a feeling this is going to be a long journey................

  • Have you seen Secret of Kells? I thought it was a good movie...a shame it couldn't beat Pixar for an Oscar though.

    I remember the trailer. I thought it looked pretty good.

    It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...
    It's all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!

    I have to say, that the image made me smile! However I would suggest that the authorities simply let the elements take care of the paint - should only take one hard Welsh winter.
