Backyard Archeology

I am looking at the body as two parts. One part is temporal and the other eternal. To show this I will research how man has tried to explain this paradox between the eternal soul and the temporal body. As a point of reference I will look at archeological sites where man has attempted to make the temporal everlasting by restoring and preserving the remains of our past.
