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.
