Yuri, here you demonstrate that you don't understand anything
at all. 
It has been pointed out numerous times to you that you
cannot look for negative evidence.

 How are you going to find
a non-existant corn-cob?  Tell me that?
So, let us assume the excavations there did not show any corn-cobs?
What would your answer be? 
You simply would say they didn't look in the right places.
