Lol, and Vegas used to be considered "recession-proof". How can a scientist be so stupid as to speak in absolutes?

Re: An Article on Repatriation of Artifacts

Just as earlier cultures all over the world didn't have the same fascination with the past that we do. In both cases it's different points of view separated by time. It is apparent that through the reuse of monuments and artefacts and continuity of non utiliatarian sites that earlier cultures did h...

Re: An Article on Repatriation of Artifacts

Terrorism, while far less dangerous than our governments want us to think it is, is a possible threat to cultural storehouses. The fact that many acquisitions were not illegal really means nothing to m...

Re: 10,000 Y O spear in FLA

What makes the site so unique is that the water entering the spring at about 250 feet beneath the surface has been underground for so long it contains no oxygen. There are no microbes or bacteria that normally destroy such relics.
