All the talk about "trash or treasure" made me think that this would be a
great question to put to students who are engaged in archaeology units.
How do we know whether what is uncovered was considered trash or treasure
to a culture? When we see a picture of the way Trajan's Forum looks today
how do we know that the rocks lying around are valuable----or are they?
Another question: How do we distinguish aesthetic value from sentimental
