The problem I have with finds like this is that we're always told about these things when the tunnels are still being emptied out. When things are
done, and everything is cataloged, we're not told a thing. If there's something significant found, we're kept in the dark. There are certain
groups that will be told everything, but we're not in that group. It's annoying when we're told when things start, but are never told about
findings, and what all was found. I think that's my biggest problem with archeology. Doctors with egos simply shouldn't be allowed to work at
these sites because they refuse to allow the common people to see and experience any of the findings.
This article is a fantastic example of it. We have a single picture with literally no context, or scale. We are told about 60,000+ artifacts, but
are not shown a single shard or fragment. We are told they used laser mapping, but weren't shown a single map that is partial or completed. They
said in the article that the entrance was where they thought it would be, but never told us how they came to that conclusion.
This is the 21st century, if we all choose to use the whole Christian time measurement thing. These people ought to have a blog. There ought to be
daily updates with new findings. We ought to be able to go scope out their profiles and see their prior work. We ought to be able to see pictures of
literally everything they pull out of the ground. There ought to be maps showing us where these tunnels go and how they relate to above ground
structures. They already have security (I'm guessing here) so it's not like release of this information would be detrimental to the dig or
artifacts. If security is the issue, then it's time to step up their game. They don't need to be keeping literally everyone in the dark because of
a little issue like security.
The reason they find it so hard to find quality funding is that they are all idiots and fail to realize that if they actually got the public involved,
they'd have a source of funding unlike anything they ever dreamed of. Lots of people really like this stuff (me included) and would drops some money
into a PayPal account for them. Now multiply that by interested people around the planet.
These people intentionally keep everyone ignorant to what's going on because of "the way it's always been done" is that they don't tell anyone
but the people who pay the bills. It is impossible to deny ignorance when these archeologists refuse to properly inform us of their findings.
