Archeologists have uncovered more artifacts after excavating around the door and under the door.

After carefully cleaning the front of the door a carved sign was found. The significance of these markings is not generally understood, but some believe it represents the number 6.

More interesting items were found under the door, which would have been the inside.

This could have been some sort of tool, or maybe a wedge to keep the door open in a required opening. Seeing how old this wedge shaped item is, it may be that P Kat’s patent for his product design may be a copyright violation.

This sign was also found on the inside of the door

Archeologists and scientists are in the midst of trying to translate what the sign says, but as of now, have only been able to translate a small part which refers to warnings.

Also, some unique stone items with carved indentations have been found a short distance from the “inside” of the door.

Again none of the team seem to know what these were originally used for.

A heavy boulder was found under (inside of)_ the door, again the reason for this is still a puzzle.

New findings are coming as the site area is fully excavated and there will be more discovered articles to see how our predecessors lived.

Note:
I actually discussed these findings with Charlie1958-1/2 and he, being from an ancient Cajun heritage, came to these conclusions.

1. The number is indeed a 6 and gave the door its designation.

2. The wedge was for holding the door open a certain distance.

3. The sign on the inside of the door was warning the person in the room about lengths of stay and emergencies.

4. The four unique stone items were an ancient game, probably the precursor for in-house entertainment.

5. The heavy boulder was an ancient form of contraception, as mentioned in the chronicles of Pope Prius XXVIII. You simply “park” the boulder on the inside of the door.

6. This site was obviously an old Howard Johnson’s motel.

Charlie is still digging and looking for ancient shampoo and soap. We wish him luck

To further support these conclusion, I can attest to the fact that I once stayed at a Howard Johnson’s which was obviously at least 5,000 years old.

I’m going to check back a little later; I want to see exactly how the boulder was used in contraception. Just curious. Park the boulder on the inside of the door? :-[

GMman,
Charlie and I are already talking about doing a reality show called “How Clean is Your Workshop”, something like “Hoarders” and “Biggest Loser”

Actually the boulder was a park and block lock as dead bolt locks with keys were not invented yet! ;-)

I think the boulder is for the female to hit the man over the head, just a thought!

The six on the door was a warning that the dice were shaved to favor the house, seven come eleven would
never have gotten mama her new shoes, and the poor carpenter entering here after work would go home
with an sour stomach from lousy beer and no paycheck. He even lost his stone ax and had to make a new one
before he could go back to work. An early version of the house of the Rising Sun.

Just one of those days when I can’t go to the shop Jack, so I treated you all to a bit of fun …....well, I got a kick out of it anyway.
