Act 2 Part 1 Summary

Everyone except Kirsten is gathered in the living room to discuss Dan and August's latest discovery, a burial site where they hadn't expected one. The circumstances and condition of the site lead Dan to formulate the theory that the tribe whose site they're excavating was similar in culture to another tribe, which means that it's possible they were governed by a god-king in the same way, which in turn suggests the possibility that his tomb is still to be found. Throughout this conversation August and Cynthia make pointed remarks to each other, Dan semi-seriously tries to talk Delia into writing about the discovery, and Chad comments on the possibility that this tribe could actually be cannibals. Caught up in his excitement, Dan makes disparaging comments about Chad. Rain begins, and August and Dan hurry out to put tarpaulins over their new find.
