Title:  Finders Keepers: A Tale of Archaeological Plunder and Obsession by, Craig Childs Renowned naturalist Craig Childs explores the paradoxical nature of anthropological excavation amongst the Native American ruins his work is based upon. To whom does the past belong? Is the archeologist who discovers a lost tomb a sort of hero—or a villain? If someone steals a relic from a museum and returns it to the ruin it came from, is she a thief?
