How not to do archaeology. I wouldn't recommend having your lawyer claim that someone was salting an archaeological site with human bone and then sue for $472 k. That's just in real poor taste.

Where does someone get human bone to fraudulently toss around on a site? Why would someone even want to do this? I guess desperate times calls for desperation. Especially after recommending that no further work be done at a site, and 124 human burials magically turn up afterwards.

I have a strong ethical view about archaeology. I've spent 21 years digging and running projects. It irritates me that there are archaeologists more interested in making money than doing a good job. But I guess every rose garden has its skunks.

Tomorrow we return to more interesting topics, such as what happens when Homer and Glenn go to the bar.
