yes, i understand your concerns and I also find them valid
i think the problem is that there is a need for restructuring the way archaeologists work, co-operate with other professions, etc.
for example, during the metro construction in Athens, there were several delays because they kept finding archaeological remains, the process of excavating and recording them is way too long, meaning a huge amount of loss in money and time of the construction of the metro plus the olympics coming and infrastructure needs to be ready and on and on....so protecting archaeology comes under a lot of pressure, i think this is the problem, how do you deal with that in the commonly desired sustainable way.
