My very early ancestors
Some information about possible early ancestors was
found coincidentally by a group
during an excursion in 1991, where the main focus
was on the hitherto
unexplored barrow in Corsica shown
Engraved in the underside of the top flagstone
of the barrow, the following picture
(depicting probably the burried person) was discovered:
A member of the achaeologists group created then
the following clear picture of the engraving:
Notice that the first part of the name, Aste,
is singled out in the full name, Aste-rix.
It appears that already at the time when the
barrow has been erected,
people tended to use diminutives.
Astonishingly, the name of the
is written in a very modern
style. Scientific medical invistigation (CSI Miami) of the
remains of the burried person that were found in the
course of the excavations
seems to indicate that the person died
due to overconsumption of
some unknown drug ("potion magique").
