Archaeological study of a hippy commune? - Really?

Groovy artifacts from 1960s Marin County commune sorted

You know you’re old when archaeologists are excavating and studying stuff that happened during your lifetime.

I need to sit down.

Ommmmmmmm. Ommmmmmmm.

Fucking A, I’m old.

The Pleistocene called – they want you to come back. :stuck_out_tongue:

umm…the problem here isnt that you are old. The problem is that somebody doesn’t know how to define “Archeologist”…

see, it’s simple:
People who study ancient civilizations and read Cuneiform tablets are called archeologists…
People who dig up macrame headbands and read Greatful Dead lyrics are called “ex-hippies”.

not that there’s anything wrong with that, though :slight_smile:

I’m stuck on the use of “Olompali” as a name. Olompali State Park is in Marin County. I’ve driven past it approximately eighteen trillion times. That is like, the single most hippie name I have ever heard. Awesome.

ETA: …and then I learned to read the article before posting. Whatever, it’s still funny to me.

I’m not sure about the “ex” part, though. How about “nostalgic maturing hippies”?

two things.

    My daughters educational field trip to Angel Island is being canceled due to budget cuts, while my tax dollars are paying archeologists to dig up roach clips!?!?
