Native American Artefact Assemblage Lost in America

Peter Fimrite, 'Indian artifact treasure trove paved over for Marin County homes', SFGate Wednesday, April 23, 2014  
The $55 million Rose Lane development in Larkspur is being built on the site of a 4,500-year-old Indian burial mound. The Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria opted to rebury and pave over the artifacts found [...]."There are a lot of things that went wrong here," Eerkens said. "It's really a shame."
US collectors who insist that the USA should be able to dictate to other countries how they should treat the archaeological heritage in their territory might like first to make sure that the US forms a pattern of good practice to be imitated and keep their supercilious remarks to themselves until it does.
