More Archaeology Bungles - 219 LexiLine Journal

The archaeologists are at it again.

I read in my local German newspaper, Trierischer Volksfreund Nr.
202, of September 1, 2004, page 28, that the local archaeologists
discovered three important sarcophags in Weilerswist about a month
ago and then just left them there unopened and unsecured - with the
result that grave-robbers in the interim have destroyed the covers
and looted whatever was inside. It probably did not help that the
local paper recently ran a story giving the exact location of the
find. I laugh out loud - incompetence supreme.

See http://rhein-main.net/sixcms/detail.php/1235813

But Weilerswist thinks IT has problems. These are nothing compared
to what we find in Egyptology, where we find that the mummy recently
and sensationally alleged to be the famed Egyptian Queen Nofretete
(Nefertiti) is probably a man.

As noted at

http://edition.cnn.com/2003/TECH/science/09/01/mummy.nefertiti.reut/index.html

"There has been some confusion as to the sex of this individual."

I laugh out loud.

Do you now see why my confidence in mainstream archaeology is next
to zero?

"Guesswork" would be a good name for the allegedly "scientific"
methods employed by this humble craft.
