Archeologists, Collectors & Relic Hunters: Can't We All Just Get Along?

Display case at Augusta Military Academy Museum. All artifacts were donated by a local relic hunter.
Here's one website that's attempting to facilitate that process:
This new blog is designed to collect important information, thoughts, ideas, opinions, and perspectives from American professional archaeologists and artifact collectors relevant to the prospects for eventually mending the long broken fences between the two camps and achieving more collaboration in the future. Its scope includes prehistoric archaeologists, historical archaeologists, collectors of prehistoric Native American artifacts, and collectors of historic-era artifacts (old bottles, war artifacts, nails, brick, ceramic dolls, etc.)  If you are an American artifact collector or a professional archaeologist, we need your help and participation in this blogging effort.
