I don't think the issue is about WA not getting it's shine from the media or archaeology but the lack of interest to expose the history by WAs. But efforts have been made on NL to expose the hidden treasures of WA and I am glad a few people on here share my interest and are bringing it all out. please keep it up Peter's rock in Mohammed's flood: from St. Gregory the Great to St. Leo III.
