"Excavation often produces confusion as to what might be artifacts or significant information and what is natural or accidental material. One must already have some structure or pre-disposition for analyzing what one finds, a means of determining the raw from the processed. This projection of a nature/culture metaphor imbues objects with a narrative component as well as a purely literal physicality. The location of specific meaning is often fugitive, and itself open to interpretation and re-interpretation. The process goes back and forth. The significant and the insignificant often are indistinguishable".
