Archaeology has been at a stage of crossroad for many years. Through personal authorizes and non-for-profit organizations it develops, gather millions of dollars for excavations, professors get millions of dollars being even pseudoprofessors, pseudoscientists and pseudoarchaeologists. Scientific events do not benefit the participants who have the best presentations (since nobody cares what is presented) but organizers even with amoral and corrupted behavior (Rosemary Joyce case). There are corrupted and criminal gangs in archaeology and also nobody cares. The money goes even for support of the most anti-humanistic (former)communist regimes which demoralizes society.
There are often crashes on this crossroad of archaeology as science and social practice but thanks to money and power there are no changes in the rules of this crossroad. How to make humanity work in archaeology? It is right one targeted by criminal non-punished archaeologists most gifted and hard-working archaeologist to wake up and instead making science to spend all the day to fight with these terrorists and to think how to safe life since as all know well the final goal of any psychotronic terrorist if not punished is murder? Is it right somebody to get a grant and then to be targeted from a possible gang related to archaeologists just her/his professional advance to be stopped? Is it right pseudoprofessors like Ruth Tringham to publish most damaging science and humanity book, and nobody to care from the non-for-profit organizations which as a rule have been designed to care exactly about professionalism and humanity? They in fact most actively contribute to corruption and crime as the most recent case with American Research Center in Sofia shows where a psychotronic terrorist and fake scientist M. Gyurova from Bulgaria not only was invited for picture but named a professor without having such title.
If it is difficult and impossible to stop corruption and crime in archaeology, it is possible to award people who still keep the fire of humanity in this field? Initiated $100,000 to $1,000,000 prizes for revealing corruption, crime, non-professionalism, criminal use of grant money, pseudoscience, pseudoteaching, corrupted to criminal leadership will help to purify archaeology, to get rid of lumpens, corrupted and criminal individuals and to make archaeology work for culture, society and all honest individuals. Now it works for corrupted and criminals and the best evidence is existence of people like Vassil Bozhkov –Skull in Bulgaria. Instead orientation toward preservation of archaeology, corrupted and criminal archaeologist in this country have been increasing the excavations to make umbrella for the treasure-hunters and to practice crime like them.
If the national, international and world organizations initiate and use their money for prizes for critics and humanity and not for covering of the crime and corruption in archaeology by honoring minor contributions, archaeology can develop as a real cultural discipline that contribute to advance of the humankind.
