Archaeology Quotations

Archaeology is the peeping Tom of the sciences. It is the sandbox of men who care not where they are going; they merely want to know where everyone else has been.
Jim Bishop

Adam Clayton

Zahi Hawass

As the archaeology of our thought easily shows, man is an invention of recent date. And one perhaps nearing its end.
