Why the Northern Plains Produces Archaeologists

I have often wondered why the Northern Plains produced so many elite archaeologists – Carl Blegen being the best known.

Perhaps it has something to do with our every day encounters with an excavated, stratified landscape.

The scarps need work, but most people don’t excavate in the dark.

This is mostly tongue in cheek.
