Now how is this for a bit of comparative “ANCIENT”?
These fossilized sea shells are well over 2 million years old.
Photographed in 2 thousand year old buildings – old to you and me, but positively juvenile by comparison!
Where taken? On the site of the original Ancient Olympic Games at Mt Olympus, Greece. Being an Olympics/Sports addict, I was positively buzzing with enthusiasm, standing on such hallowed, ancient ground, but when I found these fossils, I realized that age is simply comparitive.
