One of them related to us the story that the head Mexican archaeologist had come to him and told him that since his site, that he was excavating, was several hundred feet up the mountain from the site at which these people were excavating, that he should claim that he had found some more artifacts at his site, and that artifacts from his site probably had washed down to their level in ancient times. After the death, some thirty years later, of the "head honcho" of Mexican archaeology, this now-famous archaeologist published a paper simply claiming that he had found nothing.To him, that was very important, from the standpoint that he could report honestly for the first time in three decades what he had really found.The young archaeologist, located farther up the mountain that we have referred to, we will call "Rusty." "Rusty" was very intimidated by "Dagwood." He knew that his whole future lay within "Dagwood's" grasp, and he would be crushed if he did not do "Dagwood's" bidding.Therefore, "Rusty" decided simply not to write a report on his site.Through a friend, I contracted a "mole." This " mole" worked for the National Institute of Anthropology in the warehouses where all the artifacts from all excavations were kept.And we had him look, and he found the artifacts from Hueyatlaco.
The man who was in charge of this was a very powerful man in the Mexican archaeological community, and no one would confront him directly with these misdeeds.
About three years ago, this gentleman passed on to that "big dig in the sky where all archaeologists go." When that happened, it was once again a subject that could be talked about in the archaeological world.
We began doing interviews with different people that were related to the site or to the area at that time, We found archaeologists who now are very famous, but who were students then. In fact, he had found no artifacts whatsoever, and had a barren dig at the site.
Once "Dagwood" had stopped the excavations at the Hueyatlaco site, he realized that he was not finished.
He realized that he had to control more information and more knowledge.
