: Yuri, sometimes I wonder if you read any of the posts.  : It has been
explained to you many times that : when an archeological excavation is

You sound as clued out as ever. It's really no fun discussing things with
you because everything has to be explained to you twice... and slowly... 
This is the main reason why I rarely reply to your rancorous postings. 

Please indicate to me which Hoysala settlements of 12th or 13th century
were excavated, when, and by who, and what kinds of plant remains were
found there. If you don't know, please admit that you're simply babbling.

Yours truly,
