Hardy Jackson: Treasures Need to be Preserved
Glenn A. Davis, the examiner of public accounts for Alabama,
asked Dr. Jackson if he thought "the laws, rules and policies regulating the collection of historical artifacts or underwater
cultural resources in Alabama are appropriate." Dr. Jackson expresses his view that more artifacts can be saved and more
knowledge gained if professional underwater archaeologists following current "laws, rules and policies" excavate wreckages
and catalog their contents. See story at The Anniston Star's website: www.annistonstar.com.
