    Just watched this last night. Worthwhile viewing. Though, I’m curious: Were the Atlas Mountain nellies they were talking about the same as the ‘bush elephants’ that I’ve read about previously? Or has the ‘bush elephant’ theory been debunked by now?

    I was hoping for something a little more definitive than bacteria and churned up soil– a few bits of gear,for example–but maybe that will come with further digging.

    BTW: it’s available for viewing here:

    Yeah, I’d agree, it was not thoroughly convincing as to Hannibal’s route. Good circumstantial evidence, though. Perhaps more supporting finds will come in time.

    Some elephant bones would be a good start!
