Good post Stereo!
Indeed, campfire sites have been especially important for paleolithic studies.
In many ways, the new-agers have done what christians did to Mayan civilization, in that they have misrepresented it to suit their agenda. What has
been lost is a proper respect for an amazing pre-columbian civilization.
It is interesting to note what wahhabis are doing to archeological sites has been done all over the world. From building cathedrals over temples,
razing whole areas or burning books, pieces of history have been lost forever thanks to "chosen" ones.
Thankfully, object archeology exists though it is still hampered in many parts of the world.
Hopefully, now scholarship on the Maya will supersede new-ager idiocy.
