->Some things you can't study in books and expect to even begin to understand. The oral traditions of star-forms over Uluru. Latin graffiti bombed on Trastevere stone. Tree-ring calendars from Tunguska, beehive databases writ in wax, chamber music played in reverse to create arcane tone poems... there is much in history you need to confront and tackle head-on, preferably wearing some kind of protection.

->''Back in 1981 Bill Trotter took me to see ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' thereby sparking my long-standing interest in archaeology. Former EIC Trent Ward's mom was an amateur archaeologist and helped to cultivate this interest throughout my high school years. Once I entered college, I quickly discovered that there was a lot more to archaeology than shooting Nazis and whipping guys in turbans. My own experiences in the field of archaeology always seemed to involve an awful lot of dusting of pot sherds. (Don't call them shards.) In the true spirit of the university hierarchy it was the grad students who seemed to draw all the choice jobs that involved mine cart racing or Thuggee punching.''

The House of Indifference. Tombs are now by common consent invested with a certain sanctity, but when they have been long tenanted it is considered no sin to break them open and rifle them, the famous Egyptologist, Dr. Huggyns, explaining that a tomb may be innocently "glened" as soon as its occupant is done "smellynge," the soul being then all exhaled. This reasonable view is now generally accepted by archaeologists, whereby the noble science of Curiosity has been greatly dignified.\\
