I saw this yesterday but they still have no idea what it was for. Very interesting though.

The location is close to shore so my first thought is that the sea level was lower then and could have been used as a:
Burial site
Ceremonial site
Landmark for ships
Foundations for a structure
Huh
The fact that the stones are not hewn is interesting.

Pandas are a stupid, stupid, animal. They deserve to go extinct. They belong to the order Carnivora but they eat plants. They have digestive systems that are adapted to eating meat (which is easy to digest) and instead they eat plant (which has cellulose and is really hard to digest). The result is that they have to spend all their time eating. That means they have less time for other things like sleep and SEX. You know...the whole process by which they continue to survive? Stupid animals.

But they had the sense to move to China before the boom, and stake out some land. Tongue
I wonder where they lived before they moved to the mountains in China ?

We briefly discussed it in my biological anthropology class. My teacher said the students who next take the course will have more material to cover because of its discovery.

By the way, a new fossil ape has been discovered in Spain. It has been suggested to be the ancestor of all the great apes (including us).
