Large storms revealed the trees, branches, and pine cones that are about 10,000 years old. They had been buried under 16 meters of sand all this time.
These are awesome. I learned that aside from the United States, only two other countries in the world do not use the metric system, among other things.
I’m pretty excited about this, actually. It sounds like they are taking the time to think things through and prepare an official storyline that will become the de-facto canon for the Star Wars universe. I did read the Thrawn triology (the stories that were officially licensed to occur after Return of the Jedi), and they were very good books. I hope they can keep at least some of that story line. However, some of the trash I ready after those books deserves to be forgotten.
