Original Thought for the Day

I wonder if anyone has the actual answer to a question that has challenged me every time I see a mummy or ancient artifact. At what point does the process of digging up grave sites and artifacts go from being categorized as grave robbing to historical research and anthropology? Honestly, if scientists were to think about what they were doing from the deceased or the deceased’s family’s perspective,  as they excavated these sites they might see themselves in a whole different light. How long does a body or object have to be buried before it is considered an artifact? Ok, that’s two questions, but they go hand in hand.
