In 2015, Spanish workers destroyed a 6,000-year-old Neolithic tomb, mistaking it for a broken picnic table. They replaced it with a ‘better' picnic table

If only that was the worst case…

As you say, the better is the good enemy :wink:
In Germany, workers would discreetly disclose the hole and remain silent…since Spanish workers are much more helpful :smirk:

Here, a still not excavated but already “protected” Neolithic cave full of interesting stuff, was totally destroyed and all the material removed with heavy machinery to be use as cattle housing by the owner of the land, a rich man that has been proved to know what he was doing. He was recently judged and convicted for that.

Sure annoying, wanted to say, this unfortunately happens all the time in the world

well, it does look like a picnic table but at least is published no matter how much of a monumental error it is
