Amazing. It must be really exciting finding all these statues.

Truly amazing and thanks for that link. I have also (through watching the remarkable recent BBC2 series 'The Incredible Human Journey') become aware of an even more amazing ancient site in Turkey, which is being described as the most exciting archaeological site of recent times as it is an ancient temple complex nearly 12,000 years old.
This is the Wikipedia link
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gobekli_Tepe
I am wondering whether Spursfan Anne has been there on her trips to Turkey. It is really mindblowing.

Sai what?? MMMmmm,fine song,but --what's the link with China? Did Elton record it in Beijing?

BTW,in case you don't think I dig China,I DO dig China,but I'm not sure if China digs me.

Talking of Chinese songs,you could have chosen CHINA GIRL by David Bowie; or WALKING ON THE CHINESE WALL by Phillip Bailey; or THE CHINESE WAY by Level 42.
