Singing From Different Songsheets: "Archaeology is about Knowledge, not Treasure"

"Archaeology is about knowledge, not Treasure" say the CBA, that piece of archaeological outreach to the public went up 17th July 2012, in connection with which event? Now who can say where such an explicit message is absent?
"If you watched Britain’s Secret Treasures on ITV1 last night, you might be forgiven for thinking ...."
Members of the public, recipients of such sensationalised, dumbed-down and unreflective "outreach" might be forgiven for getting an entirely false picture of what modern archaeology is about, but after all what can one expect when you only invest fifteen million quid into giving them this kind of information?
