The promo (http://www.anacondatreasure.com/diggers.html) for the television show Diggers! makes it clear the people behind the television show are not concerned with truth, historical accuracy or the importance of context in understanding historic and prehistoric artifacts. This show appears to present a "Beevis and Butthead do archaeology" approach to excavating sites. This will only encourage others to engage in similar acts, including acts that may be illegal (such as the excavation of archaeological sites on public land, and the excavation of burials). National Geographic used to be a well-respected name, but, this show damages the National Geographic brand and should be canceled ASAP.
