Ancient Kitchen Discovered on Fault Zone

Er...ah...well archaeologists are calling it an "altar" but we chefs know better now don't we? It was more likely a restaurant kitchen, where cooks made food for customers who never materialized. (Or is that immaterial customers?) I suppose this is why it was abandon. I mean who wants to eat right on top of a fault zone?

This restaurant probably predates the development of the axiom "The three most important things to consider before opening any business are location, location, location."

You did it! You wrote about archaeology! And, although the anthropologist in me wants to go with the expert on the "altar" hypothesis, we all know how our own personal experience influences interpretation. So, my "inner chef" goes with you, Bob. Great restaurant, bad location... I wonder if there is any food dna on those potsherds.....
