Buried Church

In 1943, a volcano began growing out of a cornfield in San Juan Parangaricutiro, Michoacán, Mexico. It erupted for eight years, growing to a height of 336 meters. The lava flow buried the town, but the inhabitants were able to evacuate. Of all the buildings, only the church is now visible, rising half-buried from the new rock. Link -via Dark Roasted Blend

Wow imagine when the next intelligent species on Earth finds this town in the rock after we have evolved to become like more evolved and discapeared (as evolved super humans do). What will they think?

Apart from time for lunch.
