Looting at Kincaid Mounds, Southern Illinois

I spent a wonderful year as Visiting Scholar at Southern Illinois University Carbondale, back in 2006-2007. Their yearly Visiting Scholar program is a wonderful opportunity for recent graduates, and has led to some excellent conferences and publications. (Here's a shameless plug for my own edited volume, The Archaeology of Anthropogenic Environments.)

So I was sad to see this article that reports looting at Kincaid Mounds, a site in southern Illinois that has been excavated for many years by SIUC faculty and served as a fieldschool for a number of students, including one from my own program here in Minnesota. I hope no significant damage was done.
