    Hello,

    This show is in very bad form and bad taste. I was shocked when it first came out and shocked that it is rearing its ugly head once again. There is absolutely no redeeming mater in this show. It casts all collectors, and especially collectors of ground dug items, in a horrendous light. Would it be acceptable to have your parent, grandparents, sibling or other family members remains handled like this? Absolutely not. I recommend every buddy that is able to call the station, the news agency, the promoter and complain, and complain again. This is truly disgusting.

    Ned, I think these two screen captures provide the crux of the "professionalism" that was shown in the first two links:

    It's hard to tell in the photo, but the excavator is tearing up the floor of the dugout/bunker (or whatever the proper term for one of those wooden boxed in foxholes is). They found a nice hatchet, and were pretty excited about that though....

    Quote from the same video as the excavation as some "black diggers" wait in a car for them to be done so they can move in and get the leftover relics:

    "Black diggers contaminate a crime scene, and you just lose all sense of history because they're only concerned about one thing, profit. It's not history. Get the artifact out of the ground and history be damned, sell it. And, I have a problem with that." - Craig Gottleib

    Then proceed to rip up the site with an excavator and get stoked about all the cool stuff you find.

    Frightening to hear a comment so far left that it comes up on its on right side.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    His opinions have always been convenient to his position in all matters. Dont know if this show will hit here but they may edit it a bit to pacify people with scruples.
