Shedda watched Sair with Koro a little wistfully for a moment. Then she put it aside rather than dwell on not knowing. “Favorite…I hate to say that’s easy, but it is. That would have to be the Akuin of Thoveiturn. I spent a year studying the temple ruins in Carcoln Gap on Thoveiturn. After we discovered it, I spent a month trying to figure out the Slioskiolt. There are these massive rocks that have a refined internal crystalline structure and are filled with water. Once aligned and struck correctly the sound continues until one of the Slioskiolt is moved. The harmony and vibration is the most serene sound…feeling I’ve experienced. I sat there for hours, just listening.”

Kel was fascinated. “I don’t know anything about studying ancient cultures, but did someone think they had a spiritual or religions purpose? Or were they just natural phenomenon that had a beautiful effect?” She had always been a more quiet person during meals, but mostly because mealtimes were more rushed. Her daughter though seemed to have grown chattier, though that made sense given her change in profession.

Shedda rocked her head side to side. “We believe they are spiritual. Spiritual rather than religious because we found no mention of deities or supreme beings carved anywhere in the temple or the ruins. Or at least nothing that we translated to understand meant deity. We know the site was important because we found records at other locations that mentioned the temple at Carcoln Gap and individuals and groups making pilgrimages there. Records mention it as a place that brought peace to those that visited. And based on our study of other cultures we assume that means it is spiritual. But it could also be a place that people went to settle disputes. We have yet to discover a Rosetta Stone if you will that has allowed us to accurately translate their writing. The work on Thoveiturn continues so I hope that one day we will know for certain.”

Sair smiled almost wistfully. “It’s so interesting. You know, I wonder if archaeology will start to be a more pursued field on Kobliad in the years to come. We’re not particularly keen to look backwards.”

“Makes you wonder what might be lurking underneath the surface though,” Kel added.

“Do you miss your studies?” Said asked Shedda.
