A modern archeological expedition is no treasure hunt.The serious archeologist of today is not interested primarily in finding museum pieces or works of ancient art. His foremost interest lies in the reconstruction of the history of the site he excavates, although he does not despise the objects of utility, warfare, art, or craftsmanship which in the process of his archeological work come to light.
