This paintings exceeds expectation created by means of Mayor's past excavation, "The First Fossil Hunters", which digs out the forged is still of myths of the Classical old international.

They remain as underwater relics, potential trophies for an industrial archaeologist of the future. The force we can use to extract stuck samplers is limited to the flotation of the raft. It is comparatively simple to mount a winch or jack to the wooden raft platform, but applying this kind of force to the rods of a well-stuck sampler merely pushes the raft underwater. Indeed, experience shows that the pulling power of two or three strong people is sufficient to swamp our standard raft of two rubber boats.
Then and only then can it be set free, the piston cable clamped to the raft, and the tube pushed down past it. But there can be strong pressures tending to move the piston from its correct place at the bottom of the sample tube, particularly when pushing the sampler down the old hole. It is absolutely essential that the piston not slip from its position closing the mouth of the sample tube until it is precisely at the depth within the sediment column at which the next drive is to begin. Two alternative methods are used to secure the piston in place until deliberately freed.
Mark Bush and Paulo De Oliveira found it, after Colinvaux had been left in Quito, comatose from a sickness he had contracted in the forest. The dates overlapped with those of Mera, and Bush’s pollen analysis gave the same result, wet lowland forest invaded by Podocarpus, Alnus and others from on high. Putting the Ecuadorian and Colombian data together we now had that glaciers descended 1500 m, below them the tree-line also descended 1500 m, and below that some trees of the Andean forest descended 1500 meters to enter the lowland forest.
