So true! They would generalize and not take time and place into consideration when they started ‘connecting dots’ so to speak. While that certainly makes classifying finds easier, it certainly wouldn’t have made the conclusions accurate.

I suppose when historical sites are being discovered it is so important to know the history, know the fact, and keep your own hopes and expectations out of it in order to accurately assess the situation.
