Another Example of Good Archaeological Ethics

CAMEROON: An underground petroleum pipeline from Chad to the Atlantic port of Kribi is providing a massive window into 100,000 years of central African history. Nearly 500 archaeological sites have been uncovered along the 600-mile project, including the first substantial evidence of permanent settlement in the country’s tropical forest (dating to 3,000 years ago.) The discoveries have helped push the government to promise to strengthen its commitment to preserving cultural heritage.
