    Some convoluted version of finder's keepers, I think, but I cannot say for sure.

    I think the laws in our country are crazy, most if not all sites like the roman
    fort site are protected, which i agree with whole heartedly, but most of the
    archeaology under way is," salvage archeaology", which means only doing a
    dig if the site is in danger, ie from development, so most of these sites will rot away.

    That's the way in Norway as well.
    Simply put, not sufficient means are given to archeologists to dig out interesting sites in a sufficient time-span. I agree, it is very sad.

    I think, however, that the archeologists themselves are somewhat to blame here, sitting and waiting for public means.
    After all, the great archeological excavations during the 19th century were all privately financed; maybe the archeologists themselves should try to garner interest for their subject among the very rich.

    An example of our laws. If archeaology is discovered on a site that is being developed the owner of that site foots the bill for the dig, even if it is a private
    owner.

    I have a few very secret Native American sites near me, I won't even go near them if people are around. I have found quite a few artifacts.
    A few years back the Army corp made a flood plain in a local city field, they claim they didn't know that the little over grown hills there were burial mounds, until they washed away*. As kids we knew they were there, and we were told they were protected, and not to mess with them.

    * the remains have now been re-interred
