I studied archeaology in colledge, soon found out there wasn't much money in it, and went on my merry way.Poor saps that stuck with it are working for forest service and blm.Great benifits but who wants to answer to them? NOT me.I know how it works. If you find something of "historical" value in the first few inches it usually gets thrown in with "disturbed " material.i.e. no signifigant historical value. Most of what we dig up falls into that catagory.They are calling foul on a ball they wouldn't swing at anyway. Do what we here in Idaho have had to learn to do anyway...shoot,shovel,and shut up!

Dave, I understand Completely
by: Frank

Dave, thanks for your post and comment. I can understand your frustration at the Archaeology community. However, you discovered that doing what you love to do for the love of doing it, and not necessarily for the money, makes all the difference in the world.

BTW - very interesting relics!

Thanks again!
