While looking up a certain canyon in the Cedar Mesa area - following Nick's post with interest - I found the following statement "...canyon was not raped and pillaged by Richard Wetherill and other pot hunters in the late 1800's." I'm interested in this community's opinion of the early discoverers of native culture's in the Southwest. Gravediggers or amateur archaeologists? rape and pillage or exploration with good intention and poor execution.
