SPF: Discovery

The telephone rang and the sudden noise made John jump nearly out of his skin. He had been deeply engrossed in a book and so, while he recovered, John glared at the phone which had broken the silence. He snatched it up. “What?”

There was a pause at the other end. “Bad time?”

“Not really but I was just really into my book. What do you want, Alan?”

“There is something that you have really got to see. Are you anywhere near a TV?”

Out of curiosity, John began searching for his remote control. He found it and turned on the TV. “The answer is yes, so what channel?”


“You what? Since when did you start watching discovery?”

“It isn’t a habit of mine! Just turn it on.”

“Fine.” John flicked the TV onto the Discovery Channel and sat and watched in silence for a few moments. They were talking about the discovery of some kind of ritual skull found on the battlefield. “Is that…?”

“Yeah. Can you believe that they are looking at our art project? Doesn’t give you much faith in archaeology does it?”

“Really not,” John laughed. “The best bit, it isn’t even a real skull!”

  1. Hahaha, that’s hilarious! Question though, did their art project consist of them constructing a whole authentic battlefield along with the skull? That’s a lot of time and dedication!

    1. LOL, no, I just imagined that they buried the skull with no real thought about what was going to happen when it was discovered that. I imagine that they did not even know it was a battlefield. Thanks for reading 🙂
