Let's do the right thing here. Write a letter, turn the channel, do something to show your disdain for this uninformed show. It is not productive and values greed over knowledge. Many of the professional organizations here in the States have denounced this show as devaluing our cultural heritage. The Society for American Archaeology (SAA), the American Anthropological Association (AAA), and even the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology have all voiced their opinions of the dangers of this show to cultural resources and artifacts. I will keep all of you posted as we travel though these dark days for American archaeology.
