"In some cases the artifacts were re-used by villagers after they were found. In this photo the stone with the measuring stick on it is actually the torso of a life-size human statue. It had been re-used for modern-day construction."
It makes me wonder how much history has been lost because things were carted away and used for other things.

Let's have more digs and museums, and fewer missiles and land mines
