Why I (an archaeologist) don’t watch archaeological documentaries (warning loooong post).
I never doubt the local archaeologists who have to hang around in the background for good measure, but I have no need for a pretends-to-know-what-he’s-talking-about-presenter because production is too lazy to translate say Spanish or Arabic
Archaeology exist in two ways. Field archeo and desk archeo. No archaeologist, no matter how skilled he/she/they/them is, has the skill to do a full explanational analysis of everything he finds that day on the spot. They’re repeating old research and proposing possibilities. You have to wait until the comparative desk research and analysis is complete before you can say anything with confidence.
Once you notice it, you can’t unsee it. Have you heard anything in the news about a NatGeo archaeological dig being the big breakthrough? Just google the place or subject they’re “digging”, and as much as nothing will show up. That’s because the real results are either not as exiting (to the untrained eye), the results are simply not finished yet or they just filmed for a few days on site, put a story on it and called it a day. You can’t tell me that Thebes or Chichén Itzá is only being researched just once every three years or something.
I rather hear the local archaeology professor who’s spent their entire carrier on this site or subject than a whitewashing outsider
Archaeology doesn’t centre around Mayan kings, Egyptian pyramids or King Arthur. I’m more exited to hear about everyday life from a site or location I’ve never heard of before
Too many special effects? Field archaeology is expensive but everyone involved except for the field archaeologist wants to save money on everything. It’s not how real life works
STOP SAYING A SITE IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE YOU FOUND “TREASURES”!!! Archaeologists hype just as much on intact podzol or tertiary soil
“Wait until the scientists see this” is the one phrase that kills me every time. Archaeology is a science thank you very much (logos: Ancient Greek, meaning “science” boom. Knowledge drop). We’re not just university graded swimming pool diggers! Oh wait…

Four times taller than the Niagara Falls, the majestic Kaieteur Falls in Guyana sits in the Amazon Forest. At a dizzying 741 feet, it is also known as the world’s largest single drop waterfall!

Since National Geographic's paywall is annoying as hell, I put together something to get rid of the pop-up and let you scroll again. If you have uBlock, just go to your settings and "My Filters," then put in:
www.nationalgeographic.com##.EmailStickyFooter__Content
www.nationalgeographic.com##.ModalInner
www.nationalgeographic.com##.EmailStickyFooter__Modal.Modal
www.nationalgeographic.com##body:style(overflow-y:auto!important; max-height:none!important; width:auto!important; position:static!important;)
Then save. That should do it! If there are any other sites that disable scrolling, the last part should work for them too, just change the URL and possibly change "overflow-y" to just "overflow".
