Fighting Archaeological Theft and Vandalism

While surfing the Internet this evening, I ran into a really interesting article on fighting archaeological crime.  it was published in American Archaeology, which is the chief public relations publication of The Archaeological Conservancy. Some of the American archaeologists and Tennessee archaeologists who visit the Archaeology in Tennessee blog may have already read this article when it was first published in fall 2012.  For those assorted readers who have not read it, you may do so at the following link:
