Evretou buildings 12: this site also reminded me of Kosova/Kosovo, as it was being swallowed by natural materials, entering the ground, in the process of becoming an archaeological deposit, as many places in Kosovo were.

As these materials fade, so do the memories they hold. It is already possible to imagine future archaeologists excavating these remains and trying to piece together what happened, but how much could they learn and how convincing would their narrative of the site be? If we could maintain these sites, we could maintain those memories and convincing proof of the histories we need to tell.
