Sunken Monuments

 

A row of monuments half sunken in a Dinotopian canyon shows a partnership between humans and saurians ancestral to Abu Simbel.

Fantastic? This makes me think of the 1969 Nat Geo issue about the Abu Simbel Temples and the Aswan Dam.

NatGeo’s coverage of Abu Simbel inspied this.

Do you think there will be any more Dinotopia books, James? I’ve read, reread, worn out, bought new, read, reread… what an event a new one would be!
