Site of Royal Street Collapse Yields Archaeological Sandbox



New Orleans is a city that knows a bit about finding silver linings. So, when a historic building collapsed last October, the University of New Orleans’ Dr. Ryan Gray also received an opportunity. The urban archaeologist is now leading a team of students in a rare excavation within the French Quarter.


George Gelé's Gulf 'Truth' Expedition


George Gelé believes something lurks at the bottom of the Gulf. and he has the a "curved clay pottery piece or possibly a sewer tile" to prove it. For 35 years, the Prairieville man has been on a quest to discover the truth of what's beneath Louisiana's Northern Chandeuleur Islands. It could be the ruins of a civilization, or it could be a construction dumping ground. Either way, Gelé's quest has the support of the state, and makes for a good read in today's Baton Rogue Advocate.
