Hey, this sounds cool, I'll definitely check it out. I'm into late
prehistoric Celtic, German, and Scythian burials in a big way.

Are you familiar with the theory of a covert state religion in America
initiated with Lincoln's death, involving photography, pseudo religious
language in public sector speaches, pomp in presidential funerals, and the
like? I can't remember the authors of the book where I read this off the
top of my head, but it was a plausible and thought provoking concept. (My
vague verbal sketch doesn't do it justice.)
