The Peoples Daily in China (see ) has a short story on a stone coffin from the Tang Dynasty (around AD800) which has a depiction of Greek like Europeans engraved on the outside - evidence of contact with Byzantium via the Silk Road.

At the Latin American Herald Tribune has a story on the discovery of two temples in the jungle of northern Peru going back as early as 2000BC, belonging to the Bracamoros Culture of Ecuador/ Peru. The excavators hope to reach earlier layers of occupation at the site.
