Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
Everything is older, been there longer, first done, discovered or invented in China. Now China can lay claim to having found the oldest houses – 6,000 years old, 200 square meter above-ground houses were discovered in the northwest China’s Shaanxi Province.
However, upon closer reading of the article here, only a small portion of the houses were unearthed – two 8-10cm-thick layers of hard earth with the remains of a wall about 15 meters long and 40-50cm wide and 103 cm tall.
And they conjectured a house out of that. It causes me to think of archaeologists who discover a bone here and a bone way over there and concludes they must be connected.
Archaeology is certainly an indefinite science.
So, suppose this 3 foot by 50-foot wall did belong to a house. Then what?
What do you think?
