Archaeology and Artifacts

Kathleen Deagan, Distinguished Research Curator Emerita, Lockwood Professor of Florida and Caribbean Archaeology, University of Florida, has written a really good column about archaeology vs. treasure hunting.   An undercurrent is how archaeologists need to be better at PR, assertiveness, and educating the public. The article can be found HERE. It was written in response to pieces published earlier in the same source. The two articles she is addressing can be found HERE and HERE.
