AIA Protests Treasure Hunting Shows
February 29, 2012
Elizabeth Bartman, AIA President, sent letters to executives at National Geographic and Spike TV to express concern over the content of two new TV shows--Diggers (National Geographic) and American Digger (Spike TV)--that promote treasure-hunting and the unethical digging of archaeological sites. Below are the letters that were sent to the two organizations.
The Site Preservation Program is funding the San Bartolo Mural Project thanks to a special gala pledge drive.
