Look Out Below
I’m a Dinosaur!
Archaeologists who get caught on the job site by passers-by usually get one of three questions:
1) Are you looking for gold?
2) Are you digging up Indian burials?
3) Are you digging up dinosaurs?
The first two are unlikely but may be in the realm of artifacts and remains discovered by archaeologists, but you will NEVER find an archaeologist knowingly excavating a dinosaur. Usually this is done in stone and not soil. Generally, you can’t dig up dinosaurs with a trowel.
