You claim "but in neither trench did the archaeologists find any evidence that the ground had been disturbed in millions of years." and then follow that with a quote "It looks like when the Nazis destroyed the gas chambers they dumped sand from the quarry at Treblinka 1 over the ruins." which contradicts it. Plus they dug down and found structural remains under 1 metre of rubble and sand.theblackrabbitofinlé wrote:Nessie wrote:If you dug down into undisturbed ground you would expect to come to remains from 1943-5 before you come to fossilised sharks teeth. That such teeth are found above remains from 1943-5 tells us the sand above the remains came from somewhere else and was dumped on top. You cannot have a naturally occurring instance of older remains found ontop of newer such as found at TII.
Once again Nessie your attention to detail is found wanting.
The fossils were found in either Trench 4 or 5, the programme doesn't state precisely which, but in neither trench did the archaeologists find any evidence that the ground had been disturbed in millions of years.
As the team dig deeper in both trenches, they find no evidence of a solid structure like bricks or concrete. Then Ivar makes a startling find. It's not a good sign.
I - So we found a shark tooth, and I'm not joking. This appear to be some other fossil.
N - It looks like when the Nazis destroyed the gas chambers they dumped sand from the quarry at Treblinka 1 over the ruins.
C - We've just dug a little test pit down in hours, round the corner and it's just sand, continuous sand.
N - That sand contained tiny fossils from when this whole area was a sea bed, millions of years ago It's a major set-back for Caroline and the last thing the team were expecting.
C - We didn't find any more things apart from the fossil material.
I - More fossils
C - Hm!
N - The team continue to dig to 1.5 metres. There's no sign of any building materials. Just more sand and stones
C - yeah same as you
I - Yeah?
C - I think . . .
N - Caroline decides to stop believing that in this area of the camp the Nazi clean up appears to have been effective.

Charles Traynor thinks that could have happened naturally or by animals. Do you?
